om_odbc sql_exec bind parameters


When I call sql_exec with a bind parameter

if (sql_exec("INSERT INTO Events (Id) VALUES(?)", $ID) == TRUE) {}

I get the following error:

INFO SQLBindParam failed; HY104:1:0:[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver] Invalid precision value

Same commnad using string concatenatiion works fine:

if (sql_exec("INSERT INTO Events (Id) VALUES(" + $ID +")") == TRUE) {}

Could you help me with it?

Sending XML file to Syslog Receiver

I have a fairly simple question regarding sending an XML file to my SysLog Receiver (Nitro box).  Currently, I'm attempting to send this file to my Nitro box, but I'm not actually seeing the Syslog being sent to Nitro.  I have tcpdump watching for the packets being sent and I'm not getting any information across.  I verified that packets were being sent and captured to the Nitro box with a generic Syslog generator.  Here is my current .conf file.
