not sure what level you're planning to log...


logging trap debugging

I'm also not familiar with the configuration of winsyslog (I have used kiwi's free syslog daemon though with success - http://www.kiwisyslog.com/ )

Also, the Cisco router will send syslog to loggin facility local7 by default. Is this what you've got configured to accept logging with the daemon you're running? just checking...

I usually segregate my syslog traffic and send to a different logging facility...like this:

logging facility local6

and then specifically define a new path for my router logs.
