    Hi folks,

    I know that recently Wallwatcher has stopped development etc. I was wondering if there are any programs out there that are similar? Hopefully one that works with my new Netgear WNDR3700 router.

    Thanks.

    I have yet to find anything that competes with WallWatcher, providing your router is compliant. I searched for a replacement about a year ago, but did not find a worthy successor.

    Not quite sure what you're looking for exactly (darn, I'm getting old....)

    Maybe LinkLogger?
    http://www.linklogger.com/
    Blake (developper of LinkLogger) is a very active and highly respected member at DSLR, for example at DSLR-Security:

    You might also have a look at the DSLR forum "Hardware By Brand":

    Maybe something from KIWI:
    http://www.kiwisyslog.com/

    PS:
    Wouldn't it be better to have this in the "Other Firewall section"?
    Well, it could be here or there or in other hardware; it can be in all those forum sections, but I for one would prefer it in "other frewalls"'; well of course up to the mods ;)

    I've been playing around with Syslog servers for a day or two, currently I'm looking at Powerful Syslog Server for Windows - Syslog Watcher | SnmpSoft Website It's freeware and seems pretty powerful, so far.

    Kiwi do offer a freeware version of their Free Kiwi Syslog Server from SolarWinds but I wasn't that keen.

    You could also take a look at the offerings found here http://www.softpedia.com/dyn-search...&sort_field=0&results_per_page=10&pick_only=0

    Installing Cygwin is another option, then you could run something like Running Syslog -NG on Windows - Event and Log Management - Logged There are others.
