That forum thread has the configuration you need.
As to whether it will work, you will need to see the specifications for the windows box. You need to know what port it expects the information on.

Now, about your windows box. Windows ain't Unix so you'll have to find a syslog program for your windows box before this will work.

where 126.96.36.199 is the IP for the windows server on which the kiwi syslog server is running. This is the setting on all my hpux boxes but only one is sending its messages to the syslog server and no entry to /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log Please can some help?

the way to send syslog entries to a remote server is the already mentioned by Steven and Bill, if it's already configured in such way and working for just a system then I'd check if there is a space or a TAB between fields in the file. It's important they are TAB, otherwise syslogd couldn't work as expected.
NOTE: I wouldn't give 0 points to Steven and Bill (two of the best contributors of ITRC forums), they have given the right and perfect procedure to achieve what you requested, if it doesn't work in your case then you should find the reason (I gave a my thought about the possible reason).
Of course everyone is free to assign points as desired but giving 0 points means (to me) that it's not appreciated at all the effort of people to give help. It's just a my personal note...

Thanks for your concern and education. I want to say sorry to Steven and Bill. I'm new to the forum and really did know how the points assignment works. Once again thank you very much.
However, back to my problem. The space or
NB: Steven and Bill am sorry. Thanks

so welcome to ITRC forums :)
About space or TAB I meant you must have TAB between fields, for example:
and so on for all rows.
Be sure the file is so configured.
Enjoy using ITRC forums.

# vi /etc/syslog.conf
In vi hit the escape key and type
: set list
Then you will see all the TAB characters as ^I. You must *delete all* spaces in this file and put TAB characters instead. Then save the file and restart the syslog daemon.

ANY line with a space ANYWHERE on the line becomes a comment. To make sure your syslog.conf file is correct, use this command:
cat -tv /etc/syslog.conf
Every line that is used to configure syslog must have ^I between items and no spaces. In vi, you can turn on the visible display of special characters with this command:
Then turn it off with:
As far as I know, this is the only file in HP-UX with such bizarre requirements.
