For years I've been a big fan of Kiwi's tools. Their syslog server and router config tools are quick, powerful, and super geeky - right up my alley. Well, as of now, I can use them for free which is sort of like getting a second Christmas except the presents are way cooler... You can read the full story here.

If you're not familar with these tools I highly suggest that you download them and try them out. There are free versions and licensed versions (you can download a free eval for the licensed versions) of both of the tools available and a description of the differences.

Also, now that SolarWinds users and Kiwi users are one and the same, we've expanded to support users of the Kiwi applications. You can read more about this in Welcome Kiwi Folks.

Long story short, if you need a cool syslog server or if you're doing router, switch, and firewall config backups by hand - Kiwi tools are the tools for you...
