Syslog to SNMP

Postby Bennyl » Tue Feb 26, 2008 8:51 am

I would like to know if using Winsyslog 8.1, I can do the following things.

1. Receive a syslog message and forward it as a SNMP trap
2. Receive an SNMP trap and forward it to another server

thank you

Hi Benny,

regarding your questions. WinSyslog can create a snmp trap out of a syslog message, so yes this is possible. Depending on what you use as snmp receiver, you need to select a proper OID for the syslog message.

Your second question isn't directly possible. You can receive SNMP Traps, and generate a SNMP Trap. But it will not be exactly the same, so it is not a Forward. It's more like receive, process internally and create a new trap which contains the informations of the originally trap.

I hope this helps,
