this is a project in itself, we can't tell you how to do this at all. There are some good documents in the gentoo.org library though, and they use my recommended syslog service, syslog-ng which you'll probably find much much easier to use and understand.

also you might like a producy like splunk instead of a conventional syslog server. it's nice.

Also don't say "i was not success in setup" but give us anything tangible like error messages to help you with.
