Re: [nv-l] ? about monitoring event logs on Windows 200x
I believe that eventwin is only supported on Windows 2000 Server and
Windows 2000 Advanced Server. I don't think workstations are supported.

It certainly is not installed on my XP Pro Workstation by default.
As for Glen's question about how to monitor a service that doesn't listen
to a port, I'm completely baffled.
If you take a look at /usr/OV/conf/servmon.conf you'll see why I'm asking.
servmon is all about trying to connect to a designated port on a remote
box to find out whether there is anything listening on it. That's port
sniffing, which is how an outside agent would determine that box such-and
such has something running on it which is listening on that port. I don't
have any idea how an external agent would determine that a service which
did not use a port was active, unless there is a MIB you could query, such
as the HOST-RESOURCES MIB or something more vendor-specific. In fact, I
don't even understand what kind of a service that would be exactly. How
would another user access it if not by port?
So far as I can see if it doesn't use a port, then you cannot use servmon
to monitor it, and you would need some other tool running on the box to do
it for you, which might very well mean that you cannot do it without
purchasing additional software.
