... as the ports syslog-ng sends its messages to are configurable.
I don't know windows' syslogging, but if it uses the standard port 514 to receive foreign messages, you can use the normal syslogd that comes with linux.
Just enter
*.debug  @[your_windows_loghost]
in your /etc/syslog.conf to have ALL messages sent.

Hi,
I'd strongly suggest using syslog-ng -

look at

http://linux.die.net/man/5/syslog.conf

basically you need entry like

kern.crit                    @finlandia

where finlandia is the syslog server (in /etc/hosts or dns or its ip address)

If port 514, as you wrote, you can use the standard linux syslogd. Look at our previous posts, please.
