Setting edge syslog-ng clients to log to a central syslog server

Add this to the bottom of the syslog-ng.conf file on the edge node:

# Remote syslog server
destination syslogserver { udp("" port(514));};
log {source{src); destination(syslogserver);};

Edit IP as appropriate.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
