No, you dont have to edit the config.xml file.

on m0n0wall: you dont have to do anything else than provide the ip-adress of
the remote-server, and click the logs you want to remotelog.

on remote-server: run commands that are quoted, eg: 'man syslogd' vil give
some information on how to setup syslogd.

Running this commands on the remote-server:
'kill -KILL <pid of syslogd>'
'syslogd -a <ipaddr of m0n0wall>/<masklen>'

..vil make syslogd accept datagrams from m0n0wall, taken you have provided
the correct ip-address and masklen.

eg: 'syslogd -a'
