can't get syslog to log to remote host

I currently have two linux machines running, one is running debian woody, the other mandrake 8.2.
I Usually work on the mandrake machine and I would like all syslog messages from both machines visible on tty10 of my mandrake machine. Here's what i did and what doesnt work

on mandrake:
1 edited /etc/sysconfig/syslog so the SYSLOGD_OPTIONS line looks like: SYSLOGD_OPTIONS="-r -m 0"
2 edited /etc/syslog.conf and added the line: "*.* /dev/tty10"
on debian machine
1 edited /etc/syslog.conf and added: "*.* @loghost"
2 edited /etc/hosts and added an ip for the loghost

restarted syslog on both machines...
Now i do see the syslog from the mandrake machine appearing on on tty10, but not the debian's messages

any clues ???

This works fine for me. Is the syslog port (514) reachable on loghost (i.e. not firewalled out)?
