Syslog Server on Windows with Kiwi Syslog¶
pfSense can send logs to an external server via the syslog protocol (Remote Logging with Syslog). For Windows users, Kiwi Syslog Server is a nice free option for collecting logs from pfSense firewalls. It can be installed as a service for long term log collection, or run as an application for shorter term needs. It is compatible with both server and desktop versions of Windows 2000 and newer. The installation is straight forward, and doesn’t require much configuration. Help can be found in its documentation after installation.
