Issue: Windows Firewall blocks syslog messages.

Cause: If you are using a version of Windows that comes with Windows Firewall, this prevents syslog traffic to go through Kiwi Syslog Daemon.

Resolution: User needs to check Windows Firewall and add an exception to Windows configuration to allow syslog traffic to come in. To do this, follow the steps below: 

1. Go to Control Panel Windows Firewall > Exceptions

2. Click Add Port and add an exception.


NOTE: If you have also set up Kiwi Syslog Daemon to listen for syslog messages via TCP or SNMP traps, then you will need to repeat the steps above and change the port and protocol as required.
