quite simply..
just establish a p-t-p IP connection.. through /dev/lp0 for example.
use a reserved ip for this..

something like:
  ifconfig lp0 inet 192.168.0.10 192.168.0.11 netmask 255.255.255.0

(others interface could have a normal IP .. or another reserved ip, it
doesn't matter.. if possible, use a completly different reserved class
for such things.. ie, if your ether/atm/fddi interface is using 192.168.x.x,
well, use 10.x.x.x for this.. just to really hide this ptp interface)

then, in your syslog.conf, use something like this:

*.emerg;*.alert;*err;*.notice;auth.* 192.168.0.11
