i'd suggest logging to a loghost, in clasic syslog.conf:
*.*	@loghost
will send all logs to loghost machine, which has to be added to your
hosts file. if you are using syslog-ng, it's slightly more complicated,
but gives you more advantages! syslog-ng can send via TCP, so you can
encrypt it with stunnel ..
having an old-skool syslog at port 514(udp) is a potential security
hole, but i do use it localy. once tried to have it over the internet -
had about 5 people attacking me after a few hours!

i can post a syslog-ng.conf file if you wish ..
i couldn't get stunnel working yet ;(
but there tutorials ..
