I have a Linux based router/firewall that I want to connect to Sentinel.
I started writing a custom collector but after seeing the events I can
see that they are we much like the events that SLES produces.

So I don't want to start from scratch.

Can I use the SLES collector as a base and "trick" it into collecting
events from my router/firewall instead of the events going to the NetIQ
Universal Collector?
