[Snort-users] Remote Syslog

In your etc/syslog.conf file use the @ symbol to direct the syslog to a
remote machine.

I believe the line to add in syslog.conf is:

LOG_LOCAL1		@x.x.x.x

This will send all alerts to your remote syslog. It must match your
output alert line in snort.conf

output alert_syslog: LOG_LOCAL1 LOG_ALERT

Your remote syslog server will need to have the appropriate settings
installed in your syslog.conf.

LOG_LOCAL1		/var/log/snort
