Open a UDP socket to receive log messages, specify port to use, character encoding, optional add a timestamp to incoming messages. Default port is set to 514 the Syslog (UNIX) port. Depending on the source of the log, the logmessages will contain a timestamp. If the source of the log does not contain timestamps, TailExpert can add a timestamp. Check the “Save incoming to file” to save the retrieved logmessage to a file.
