How do you log to remote system

    I am new to the Linux/Unix environment. I have setup an Apache box (Ubuntu 9.04) and have it available on my network. The remote log settings in Tomato (1.23) just asks for an IP addy and port. Is it looking for some type of log service handler at this address? Or do/can I specify a specific folder for example // on this remote box, (on the assumption that it creates a readable text log file?) Or do I need a program on this remote machine to process the logs? I am stumped on this one. My inexperience coming to the forefront, again.

    Have a look at syslog-ng, should be available as a ubuntu package

    Installed the syslog-ng, was not sure how to setup the config file in order
    for it to start grabbing the tomato logs...

    Can anyone point me to some on-line (specific) help for configuring syslog-ng (Ubuntu) and tomato?
