Hi, to setup syslog server on ubuntu you will need to modify following two files:
/etc/sysconfig/syslog
/etc/default/syslogd

Hi!

Can you please check and confirm what version of Ubuntu linux is installed on machine, use following command:
cat /etc/issue.
I tried following steps on Ubuntu 8.10 live disk and required sysklogd package and files are there.

Use following command to find if syslog server installed or not on your machine:
dpkg -l |grep sysklogd

If this doesn't return any output then you may have to install the syslog server, use following command to install the syslog server:
apt-get install sysklogd

Once sysklogd package installed you should be able to find /etc/init.d/sysklogd file.

Thanks,
Pkhera
