Is there a way to connect to a local Microsoft Access Database using the universal forwarder?

New Member

I have an application that logs its audit logs to a local Microsoft Access Database. I have an ODBC connection ready, but I'm not sure how to connect the Universal Forwarder to it.

Is this a job for Python?

You may install DB Connect app to connect Access via ODBC.
This is unsupported but it should work.

Does DB Connect run on a Universal Forwarder?

I believe it does not. I could install a heavy forwarder I guess.

DB Connect app does not run on universal forwarder. Heavy forwarder is required.

Hi

I don't know if this helps, but we are doing exactly the same for a customer at the moment, but have ruled out the database connection using DBX, instead we are setting up something to receive the radius logs, IAS in this customers scenario. The Direct access server is then sending it's logs via radius logging. We are then writing the logs to disk using IAS and reading them in with a simple file monitor in the UF.

I hope this helps you.

Thanks
Darren
