I've just installed the Log Forwarder to send server logons to our Solarwinds server from a Windows 2008 R2 box. This appears to be working fine as I can view the events on the Solarwinds box using the Syslog Viewer. The issue I've got though is that I can't see anything on the Syslog page on the Solarwinds website, have I missed an obvious step somewhere?
Turns out it was actually 2 things I'd not counted on
1) You need to have the source box on solarwinds
2) Make sure if you have an account limitation that the server hasn't been excluded by it
