help - remote logging with syslogd

Hi and thanks for reading.
I'm trying to do remote logging and this is what I'm trying to do:

server = comp1
logserver = comp2

in the servers /etc/syslogd.conf file I have

in the /etc/hosts file I have logserver there and when I do ping logserver,
it can see the logserver.

on logserver I start syslogd with
syslogd -m 0 -l server
and I have server in the /etc/hosts file and ping server also works

problem: It does not work, when I do this, on the server side, it stops
logging so I assume there is somethig wrong with the syslogd.conf file on
the server.
by the way yes I do restart syslogd everytime I change something..

I would greately appreciate any hints or perhaps a web site ? :)

thanks again.
