I would like to use Nxlog CE agent to forward logs as snare log to an S3 bucket from Windows and Linux servers. I've read the documentation https://nxlog.co/documentation/nxlog-user-guide/addon-amazon-s3.html. But I'm a bit confused because it is stating that I need to install Boto3. Do I need to install Boto3 on all my servers to be able to forward Windows event log and other logs such as DNS, etc. to S3 using Nxlog CE? Also, does anyone know what ports are needed to let this pass through the firewall?

Thank you so much!

The S3 add-on uses Python, so it won't work with the Community Edition.

Boto3 is on the background of communication with S3 buckets, hence, it would be required to be present in the system.
