Q. What type of event logs are supported?
A. EvLog supports the Application, System, Security, DNS Server, File Replication Service and Directory Services event logs.
Q. How many systems can I monitor with EventReader 3.0?
A. Theoretically, there is no limit (at least there is not limit imposed by us, programatically) - it all depends on how many your network can support.
Q. I think that the program can be improved. Can I send a suggestion?
A. Yes, please send any suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are very flexible on adding new features.
Q. I need to monitor events on computer located behind a firewall. What ports do I have to open on the firewall?
A. EventReader requires the same ports as Microsoft Event Viewer. These are TCP/135, TCP/137 and UDP/137.
Q. I have some technical problems with EventReader. What information do I need to send you?
A. Here are few things that we may need in order to troubleshoot the problem:
- Does Microsoft Event Viewer work fine in the same conditions? (if applicable)
- What error message do you get?
- Did it work before but recently stopped working?
- What operating system do you use on the computer creating the problem?
Send this information to email@example.com.
Q. How can I obtain the full access to the links displayed in EventReader reports?
A. A subscription to www.eventid.net is required.
