can't get syslog from PIX515e

I have been having problems seeing my network using remote-site VPN (still open question) I was advised to check the syslog of my PIX515e to see if a misconfiguration of ACL is causing this. i have followed the configurations steps for syslog of Cisco.com and i have on my local machine installed Syslog Watcher Pro. so far I can't receive any information from my PIX. my network is setup to have a DMZ behind the firewall, could that be it?
 I use ASDM for most of my configurations.
bellow are my PIX configurations:

Hello nader911t,
      Most probably, a software firewall like Windows Firewall is blocking syslog port UDP 514. Yet you dont need a syslog server since ASDM has one built-in.

Add this:

logging trap informational

Also, verify the syslog server is listening on 1470
