SolarWinds is still offering a free version of Kiwi, in addition to an enhanced licensed version. Here is a link comparing the two versions:
Splunk is really a great took which I would recommend to investigate to further check on the received data.
But it seems to be a better way to have a dedicated syslog service and then hook to that with splunk.
I would either simply run a dedicated linux vm with a syslog server (and possible splunk on that one as well).
An other option on a windows system could be to use cygwin and then install syslog-ng,
that would also give you the flexibility of a more advanced syslog server, but I would prefer linux or bsd.
These links are just googled:

I've been using 3CDaemon. It has "TFTP Server", "FTP Server", "SysLog Server" and "TFTP Client".
You can get it from http://www.firewall.cx/downloads/doc_download/16-1-3cdaemon-server-a-client.html
I have tried 3cdaemon tool for syslog messages but these logs are not saved anywhere.
Can you please tell me how these logs will be saved automatically?

I hope others find this helpful. When you point a device's Syslog IP pointer to your workstation's interface IP then run Wireshark and start a capture using the same interface, Wireshark actually picks up and decodes the packets sent from the device as Syslog and of course one can save the capture file.
I decided to created a small program what allows you to install a syslog server on a debian based Linux platform. (For the moment Ubuntu server 16.04 LTS tested). It has a small CLI version to get a live view and a web based GUI to check your archive and current logging. More info: https://www.remotesyslog.com/. It is completely free with no limitations and has no commercials. (To make the GUI more secure check the optional configuration section). We actually tested it with multiple Cisco devices and WISM modules.
You might probably have heard about SYSLOG Server Software but in case you don’t know about it then we will explain it to you here. Syslog protocol is known as a communication standard that is utilized by devices in a network to log dissimilar type of actions like an alternation in VPN connection, beginning of an IP connection, or discovery of a problematic file. It becomes the work of the Network administrator to check the log files and find any inconsistencies that may specify an issue in the network. Here we have a short list of some of these SYSLOG Server Softwares for your convenience. Go for the detailed list by following https://appuals.com/the-5-best-free-syslog-server-softwares/
