Got it, we will get it fixed, thanks!

Level 15

Link should be correct now, thanks once more!

Kiwi rocks, and is my real-time critical monitor friend that tells me when EIGRP and BGP neighbor states change.  I know something's broken faster than the users can call the Help Desk, and I'm already focused on it, thanks to pointing critical router & switch syslogs at my personal Kiwi.

I'm almost always at my desk, but Kiwi lets me build rules to forward that critical info to my cell, pager, Help Desk, Team, and WAN service provider.  Talk about getting the right people's attention at the right time!

I posted an inquiry concerning the status of the next Kiwi Syslog release several days ago (see When is Kiwi Syslog v10 coming out?​).   I was hoping to hear from you, at the very least, concerning the Roadmap for Kiwi Syslog.

Please, reply ASAP, so I (and other Thwackers) get know what's in the works for this product.  Many thanks.

I'd be happy to setup a call so I can gather feedback on how you're currently using the product, features you'd like to see added and your priority of each feature.  I'll follow up via email.



We've been having problems getting kiwi syslog server to start under windows server 2012 R2.  EMET won't allow the service to start.  Has anyone gotten this to work under windows server 2012 R2?  This is a serious problem for us.  One of my partners has a case 999667 open on this now.  Since most of our logging depends on the kiwi syslog server we are working on projects that require this functionality and auditors aren't going to like this not working.

Level 10

Tried and failed reverted back to 2008 R2.

Level 9

Having this issue too (Case: 1057717).  Seems to be a slow roll for support.

Level 9

EMET uninstall and re-attempt failed this AM as well.


This is ridiculous so kiwi won't run on Windows2012R2 at all then it sounds like.  I installed the free version of What's Up Gold and it's syslog server runs fine.  I'm using that for now because I have mulitple DISA STIGs that requires a syslog server to be compliant.  This network is basically one client machine, the server, firewall, IPDS, router and a couple switches... that's it.


Thanks for the comment emtox


This is also very helpful information.

Yep pulling down WUG now - can't wait any longer for the 'dev is looking at it' status to change without having *something*
