Syslog (or rsyslog) will do..

Have a look at /etc/sysconfig/(r)syslog

Subject: [CentOS] syslog question

I have a 64bit centos 5.2 system. My router supports sending logs to a
syslog server, so I was hoping to send them to my centos box so they are
easier to keep an eye on. 

I've been googling for howto's etc, but I didn't think syslog would be
that difficult. Do I need to use syslog-ng or can I use the syslog
that's installed with centos 5.2?

Any suggestions or guidance?
