Kind of an unusual request.  Normally transaction logs are not something that are directly manipulated or retrieved.

What are you attempting to accomplish?

I ask, because you could, for example, backup the transaction log, and retrieve that backup file from the remote SQL Server.
You could also setup log shipping, which uses the transaction logs to play the same transactions on two different databases.

Unfortunately, the question sounds like you want to retrieve the transaction log.  There have been tools in the past, like SQL Log Rescue, and you still have some other options for log reading in 2008, but they will require that you copy the transaction log file, or otherwise have file access...
