You can have syslog-ng configured to log to a logging server, and to use a socket as a source at the destination. There is a syslog-ng.conf manpage. You may find examples on the net searching on google.

something like udp("destination ip+port514");to destination on source
and file("/var/log/auth.log");on source to destination
Dosn't work

This has an example of securing the log traffic through stunnel

Here is a syslog-ng mailing list archive:

There is a particular example here:
