Dunno if I understand you correctly, Micheal. From a first glance I would
say that you just need a static route in your Monowall telling it where to
route the syslog packets. This would be the ip adress of the router side
where your monowall is connected. 

If you are talking about a syslog server sitting elsewhere over internet
behinda  router that has a DynDNS address, we talking a different story.
Personally I would NEVER do that unencrypted because syslog info may carry
'interesting' debug info.
