	if you have some sort of nix box, you can use the default syslogd 
usually recieve events from m0n0wall.  ie) set your m0n0wall config to 
forward syslogd events,

check off the "Enable syslog'ing to remote server"
enter its ip address
check what you would like to be logged.
ie) firewall events... possibly system events.

configure syslogd on your remote syslogd box to recieve m0n0wall 
requests. on linux: syslogd -m 0 -r

restart syslogd. bingo.... your logging to a remote server.

if you want to curve it even more you can always "tail" your logfile 
wiht grep statements i suppose.
ie) tail -F /var/log/m0n0wall |grep ipmon

hope thats what you need.
