    how can I......

    Ok, here is what I got. I installed Red Hat FC3 on a low end computer and made it my syslog server (first time). I see that the machine is recieving messages from my devices. Is it possible to view these messages from a remote machine, such as Windows XP? Lemme know......

    Yes. Simplest way is to SSH into the box, su to root, and do "less /var/log/messages" (or wherever you store your syslog). If you're looking for particular info, try "grep <searchstring> /var/log/messages". If you go the grep route, I recommend you read up on regular expressions: http://www.regular-expressions.info/tutorial.html

    Is there any kind of program out there that would allow me to view these messages with detailed graphs and reports?
