I've got a server running Ubuntu Server 10.04.  syslog-ng has been installed on it.  I would like to configure it so it sends firewall events from IPtables to a remote syslog server.  I would also like any logon / logoff events to be sent to the remote syslog server.  How do I go about this?

IPTables can log many different events, depending upon what you want to watch for. Here's a link to a discussion about this containing several examples showing how to send logs to syslog:
