Hi All, 

Could anybody give advice how to manage the EvenLogs of  Windows computers
and servers from Mono under Linux ?? 
Here is a sample code which works fine under Windows but nothing happen when
I run under Linux and I don't get any error message. 
Of course I tried the machine name with Windows machine's IP address. 

using System; 
using System.Text; 
using System.Diagnostics; 

    class Program 
        static void Main() 
            string myRemoteMachine; 
            string myLogName = "MyLog"; 

            Console.Write("Enter computer on which to create log : "); 
            myRemoteMachine = Console.ReadLine(); 

            // Check if the source exists. 
            if (!EventLog.SourceExists("MyTestSource")) 
                //Create source. 
                EventLog.CreateEventSource("MyTestSource", myLogName,
                Console.WriteLine("Creating EventSource"); 
                // Get the EventLog associated if the source exists. 
                myLogName = EventLog.LogNameFromSourceName("MyTestSource",

            EventLog myEventLog1 = new EventLog(myLogName, myRemoteMachine);

            myEventLog1.Source = "MyTestSource"; 
            // Write an entry into log. 
            myEventLog1.WriteEntry("This is for your information", 
            Console.WriteLine("An EventLog created on computer " + 

            Console.Write("Enter remote computer on which to create log :
            myRemoteMachine = Console.ReadLine(); 

            EventLog myEventLog2 = new EventLog(); 
            myEventLog2.MachineName = myRemoteMachine; 
            myEventLog2.Source = "MyTestSource"; 
            myEventLog2.Log = myEventLog1.LogDisplayName; 
            myEventLog2.WriteEntry("This is for your information"); 
            Console.WriteLine("An EventLog created on computer " +
