Fortigate 5 IPS syslog flexagent

Fortigate 5 IPS syslog flexagent


since our firewall guys wanted to see IPS messages from fortigates and those weren't parsed by the syslog connector, we wrote a syslog flexagent. Put the attached file into $AGENT_HOME/user/agent/flexagent/syslog and restart the connector.

This has been tested with Fortigate 5 GA Patch 5.

do you have have to install a flex connector for this to work? or will it work for the regular syslog connector?
