in thread Windows Eventlog from unix

A fairly straightforward approach that's almost what you want, while leveraging the Win32 classes, is to have the Windows box do the event log parsing using the relevant modules and send the results onto the Linux box via a network socket or a text file on a network-accessible drive.

If not P, what? Q maybe?

    Yea, but then I have to install Perl on every windows box. I was hoping to avoid that. I know that on Windows you can open logs on another box (I have no idea how it does it . . .sockets? RPC? ), I thought that maybe the Eventlog module could do the same--open a connection to a remote box and read its events. Ah well.
