PJ Syslog, a free syslog server for windows

A few years ago I created a Syslog server for Windows, to fulfil some personal requirements. I needed something to log syslog data from multiple sources and relay on to another syslog server. A friend also wanted a way to monitor for certain alerts, thus, PJ Syslog 0.1 was born. I just had need to utilise this again and it’s been a couple years so I thought I’d update this and push it out to anyone that wants to use it, free for non-commercial use (though beer money is always gratefully received). Commercial arrangements and custom versions are available if you wish to re-distribute. No install.  Just copy to a home folder on your PC and run. Config settings are in the config file. Requires the .net 4 runtime which you likely already have.

PJ Syslog is free for non-commercial use but if you find it useful and wish to donate beer money, you can do so Via Bitcoin or PayPal. Any amount (no matter how small) will give you a warm fuzzy feeling and help me keep the power on. Be fair, just donate what you think is right. Thank you.
