Normally the messages are written to the log files using the default encoding format (code page) of the system. If you are receiving messages from systems that use different default code pages, the best solution is to send/receive the messages using UTF-8 encoding. Kiwi Syslog Server can be set to convert the received messages into Unicode internally. When writing Unicode messages to a log file, it is recommended that you use UTF-8 (code page 65001) encoding. UTF-8 can represent all of the Unicode character set.
The various code pages available on most Windows systems can be found at:
Here are some common code page numbers that can be used:
Please note: If the number you specify is not a valid Code Page on your system, no data will be written to the file.
If in doubt, use UTF-8 encoding (65001) as it will handle all Unicode characters.
