On Windows XP? It should be readable by everybody.
What permissions and ownership do you see for the log? For instance, I see:
$ ll /var/log
drwxrwxrwx+ 1 rberber None 0 Apr 1 19:10 ./
drwxr-xr-x 1 rberber None 0 Aug 14 2010 ../
-rw-r--r-- 1 SYSTEM root 627K Apr 27 10:38 autossh.log
-rw-r--r--+ 1 rberber None 0 Dec 3 17:29 messages
autossh is running as a service, I don't have syslog-ng running so
messages is empty, both files are world readable.
