My requirement is to configure a syslog server which should collect all the logs from cisco routers and windows servers centrally.
We'll be glad to help...what problem(s) are you having right now? CentOS ships with a syslog server already running...if you want other devices to log to it, just tell those other systems/devices to send syslog information to your CentOS server. Done.
If you have syslog-ng installed (do an "rpm -qa | grep -i syslog", and see what package is installed), and want to get a bit more involved, you can send each device (based on IP address/hostname), to a different log file. There are many examples you can find on how to set up syslog-ng to do this.
