You can add the following to rsyslog.conf.  This will forward evrything except mail and news.  IPtables is not logged by default. Of course edit the IP address to make it the IP address of your remote server.

*.*;mail.none; news.none         @10.0.0.10:514

iptables logs at kern.debug
so add kern.info to same line:
*.*;mail.nonelnews.none;kern.info @10.0.0.10

I believe kernel.info will be 99% of iptable messages. is that correct. so in the below suggestion, all iptables messages are redirecting to the remote host.

so instead of
*.*;mail.nonelnews.none;kern.info @10.0.0.10

can i use this way.

*.*;mail.nonelnews.none;kern.!info @10.0.0.10

to get the result.  our target is all messages except mail/news/iptables.


Please correct me.

More like !=kern.info
I see iptables in kern.debug (always kern., sol maybe kern.warn can pass or so)
Rest looks fine.
