How to get my Server 2008 Event Logs to the PRTG Net monitor syslog sensor?



I have several server 2008 R2 servers and would like to get the event logs over to the syslog sensor I have setup, anyone got any helpful tips as I have never set up a connection to a syslog server. I have my firewalls pushing there data to my sensor and this is working without a hitch, just not sure how to do the same with windows.

For something like this, you would need to install software on the Windows Server to have it send over the syslogs to the syslog receiver on the PRTG server. As we do not use anything like this here, I cannot recommend any to use but there seems to be quite a few programs that will do this.
