Thanks for your reply but I am still not sure what to do, do you mean edit
the config.xml from the floppy and add that line into or do I create a
folder on the remote server called syslogd...

on remote syslogd server: setup syslogd and make it accept
datagrams from m0n0wall. see 'man syslogd'
i guess something like this would do the trick:
'syslogd -a <ipaddr of m0n0wall>/<masklen>'
don't use the -s or -ss parameters when starting syslogd as this will
it from opening any network sockets.
