I am looking to output syslog logs from Dell Firewall into a local directory on my windows box and I am getting error message as below:

2020-12-11 07:01:21 WARNING not starting unused module syslogs
2020-12-11 07:01:21 INFO nxlog-ce-2.10.2150 started
2020-12-11 07:01:21 ERROR failed to open tmp/output; The system cannot find the path specified.

I do not understand where i can reference the "tmp/output" within the "C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog\*" or how i can point the output file to another directory.

This is a windows box and i will like the files to be written to a folder path under C directory.

Can anyone help?

\n needs an escape, try this,
C:\\Program Files (x86)\\nxlog\\\\*.log
Module im_file
File "C:\\log\\\\*.log"
Recursive TRUE

hope it will help you
