User Manual

Address bar

Type the file path on the address bar, then click "Run" button to start monitoring file
Address bar

Either local or remote address is supported
For remote address, specify an http or ssh protocol

Ssh address format

The correct format for ssh is the following:

ssh://username[:password]@host:port/filepath

A valid ssh address example:

ssh://starredmediasoft@starredmediasoft.com:22//opt/jboss/jboss-as/server/context/log/server.log

Notice that also environment variable are supported, so the following address may be valid:

ssh://starredmediasoft@starredmediasoft.com:22/$HOME/server.log

For security reason, password is not stored in any way, so it will be re-prompted at every startup

Note on Solaris system

Default tail command may not properly works with Win Log Inspector, so under Settings > SSH tab set "Tail Path" with value /usr/xpg4/bin.
