Writing a customized SYSLOG server for Windows

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I wish to write a SYSLOG server for Windows using Delphi (2007). I know there are many good products on the market but I have custom requirements. My objective is to obtain SYSLOG events from some wireless access points. I don't know anything about SYSLOG events so can anyone get me started? Is this just a TCP server listening on a particular port, then parsing the protocol? On the switches they just want a port and ip addr of the Syslog server.
