Default Problems getting 10.04 to log to remote syslog server

I am in the process of seting up a remote syslog server to recieve messages
from a number of machines. The server is a FreeBSD machine, and I have some
other machines alreay`dy sending messages to it. But I am having difculty
getting my Ubutu machines to work with it.

I have added the following line to /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf :

*.* @XX.YY.ZZ.AA

Wher XX.YY.ZZ.AA us the IP address of the remote syslog server. I have
added this line just above the existing line:

auth,authpriv.* /var/log/auth.log

But no messages ar appaearing in the logfiles on the remote machine from
the Ubuntu machines. I have even tried sending a message manually using
logger, still no luck.

What am I doing wrong?

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
Q: What is the most annoying thing in e-mail?
