Setting up a syslog server to store Fortigate log files

I have a Fortigate firewall which allows me to direct the logs to a
remote host (syslog server). I am running FreeBSD 4.9R -- do I simply
point my firewall to the IP of my server and the logs will
automagically appear in /var/log?

The Fortigate is asking for the IP, port, and if I want to store as
CSV (I know; personal preference; not important).

Sadly, I have never done this before, so please be gentle. :)

Thank you,
