forward system logs to syslog server


I'm running Ubuntu Desktop 9.10. How do I get it to forward its logs to a syslog server (its running on a different machine)?

TIA

This should work

on sender, modify /etc/syslog.conf like this

*.warn @192.168.0.1

on receiver, modify /etc/sysconfig/syslog; add -r to list of options for SYSLOGD_OPTIONS

hmmm... well the syslog server is actually Splunk (so I don't know how to configure anything on that except add UDP 514 as a data input) and on top of that I would like the first machine to keep a copy of its logs in addition to forwarding them

is this possible?
