Win Log Inspector

With Win Log Inspector it is possible to tail a local or remote file.

Supported remote protocol formats are http:// and ssh.

SSH

ssh address format is composed in this way:

ssh://username[:password]@host:port/remote_address_of_the_log_file.

By the way it’s easy to compose thanks to ssh panel of the Settings dialog

ssh_setup

Proxy

Proxy can be configured on Settings dialog either on Network or File Watcher tab.

Notice File Watcher proxy settings is different from the classic Network tab (in which there is proxy configuration where looks for updates).

The reason of two separate config belong from a possible scenario where separate remote file settings are required.

For example, an http connection may require some specific user / password credentials.
