How to enable remote logging?

Tip provided by mgw
Syslogd can be configured to receive messages from remote hosts (via UDP).
To enable this feature, start syslogd with the -r option. Then add
the syslog server to the /etc/syslogd.conf file in the client
(use a @host syntax). This is useful to preserve an audit trail even
if a cracker does a rm -rf
