FC9 Remote Syslog

I'm trying to setup an FC9 box to receive logs from a remote machine.

I have setup /etc/syslog.conf with local6.* (matches the remote machine sending the logs) and the path to the log file (permissions are all correct).

I have edited /etc/sysconfig/syslog with the -r flag to allow incoming syslogs

I have edited my iptables to allow incoming traffic via port 514.

When I restart logging & network services, the logfile (in a custom directory within /var/log) is created, but nothing is ever written.

I ran a tcpdump -nn port 514 and traffic is being received properly, but I'm still not seeing a thing in the file itself.

What am I missing!? Thanks!
