John et al.

The free or no-cost SERVICE version works great with CVTWIN.

I have good experience with Kiwi Syslog Daemon _Service version_
together with a Linksys router with built in SPI firewall in W2KPro
environment. DShield Universal Firewall Client CVTWIN works like charm
with this combination.
The messages produced by Kiwi could be less cryptic, but what I like is
that you can so easily automate the entire submissions of logs to

If memory serves well, there are add on tools for reporting and
analysing the logged traffic if it would become of interest.

Incidentally, Technical Support of Kiwi Enterprises recommends running
the Kiwi Syslog Daemon Service with administrative privileges (instead
of running the service signed on as Local System).

Is there a security risk involved in running the Kiwi Syslog Daemon
Service with administrative privileges?

Does anyone know of running the service signed on as, e.g. a special
account with minimum, but sufficient privileges? What would those
privileges be?
