Send or forward system logs


I'm running a couple of Ubuntu machines and I was wondering how do I get them to send/forward/copy their syslog to a machine (running syslogd on UDP 514)?

Typically, on the target/remote server, edit /etc/sysconfig/syslog, adding '-r' to SYSLOGD_OPTIONS.

On the src/local system you need line(s) like this

*.auth @192.168.1.1 (ie remote server ip)

BTW, this is on RH, not sure if its identical on Ubuntu.
