You need to tell the receiving syslogd what port numbers to accept
traffic from, as well as the IP numbers.

In /etc/rc.conf:

syslogd_flags="-a -C -T"

assuming you're using the default logging port for traffic from your
RPi+.  If not, then* will allow traffic from any port
number, although personally I'd spend some quality time with tcpdump
and/or wireshark looking at what network ports were actually used.
