[Dshield] Logging problem with Linksys wireless router

I actually use this exact configuration. I have XP (Pro) and the same
Linksys router. I have set the XP box to a static IP address, and I point
the Linksys router logs to that IP. This is mainly because my box is hosting
a website. The 255 entry should work in theory, but I've never tested it.

I have the Kiwi logger system running. I chose this a) because it was
recommended on the Dshield site, and b) because it runs as a service. The
Linksys logger does not run as a service, so you only wind up trapping logs
when you are logged in. I followed the directions here:

This site helps set up the Dshield client. Essentially, once you start
accumulating logs, this will allow you to send them.

Finally, once you are happy with your sending, this will help you to
automate them.

Rest assured that I definitely was able to get this running. If you are
still having problems, let me know. I'll try and take some screen captures
for you.

Subject: [Dshield] Logging problem with Linksys wireless router

I've got a Linksys Wireless router (model BEFW11S4) that I'm trying to 
get to log to my local machine (WinXP Home Ed.).  I've downloaded all 
three products that were mentioned on the DShield web site (Linksys's 
LogViewer, Kiwi Syslog and the SNMP utility), and can get none of them 
to grab the incoming/outgoing logs on my router.

I've upgraded the firmware to the latest rev, and still nothing.  Access 
logs are enabled, and I've tried setting the destination address to both 
the specific IP of the WinXP machine, as well as the broadcast address 
for the network (

Is this a known issue, or am I missing something?
