I have a small LAN w/ a Raspberry Pi B+ as my time server & a FreeBSD 
9.3Rp13 machine (this box, as it happens), among others. The FBSD box is 
my daily driver, & I want to get the RPi to syslog messages to the FBSD 
box for convenience, & possibly reduced write fatigue of the microSDHC 
'HDD' on the RPi. I (think I) configured the RPi to log to the FreeBSD 
box, named 'kabini1':

rpi # cat syslog.conf
#       $NetBSD: syslog.conf,v 1.9 2004/07/23 03:45:42 mycroft Exp $

rpi # uname -a

rpi #


I also told the syslogd on kabini1 to accept log traffic from everything 
on my LAN:

[root@kabini1, /etc, 10:31:19am] 462 % ps -aux | grep syslog
root         743   0.0  0.0  12096   1772 ??  Ss   14Apr15 0:03.63 
/usr/sbin/syslogd -a 192.168.0.0/16 -C -T
root         783   0.0  0.1  24344  20352 ??  Ss   14Apr15 0:37.61 
/usr/sbin/amd -p -a /.amd_mnt -l syslog /host /etc/amd.map /net /etc/amd.map

syslog
You have new mail.
[root@kabini1, /etc, 7:36:09am] 463 % uname -a
FreeBSD kabini1.local 9.3-RELEASE-p13 FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE-p13 #0: Tue

root@amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC amd64
[root@kabini1, /etc, 7:47:19am] 464 %


So far after a day or 2, nothing appears from the RPi on kabini1, 
including nothing in /var/log/security (possibly indicating firewall 
impeding traffic). Almost certainly pilot error, any help appreciated 
:-) .... TIA & have a good one.
