You didn't specify what OS you are using, but I'll assume that you are on some 
kind of UNIX machine (Linux/BSD/Solaris etc).

The answer in that case is: you don't configure the remote syslog server at 
all in snort.conf

It is in syslog.conf (/etc/syslog.conf) that you should edit, and 
syslog.conf(5) man page tells you how to do it ;)

(didn't want to spell it straight out, but it has something to do with the '@'
