I have a watchguard x55e and have enabled the syslog logging option. I need to configure the syslog to receive the messages and wonder how? I need to collect them for analysis by webspy.

I was able to get the logging configured using syslog.conf and by also adding syslog parameters "-r" to receive from the remote device.
