Free Syslog for windows with the ability to forward syslog as well

Hi,
I'm looking for a free syslog (it must act as a syslog listener devices to over 300 workstations) for Windows server that can forward syslog messages as well.
I've looked at kiwi as a very nice alternative but it's not free...:( any advise?

splunk is free for a very small amout - otherwise it is extremely expensive
kiwi is free and works well - but limited amount of connections since solarwinds purchase
older versions have more capability

try syslog from source forge or syslog watcher
perhaps PRTG might be your best option

also tftp32 and 3cdaemon over sylog scenarios but you need to configure a bit
