Syslog and FreeRADIUS

Hi all,

I've decided to move logging on my radius boxes to a pair of syslog 
servers, rather than stored locally. I'm using rsyslog to send the logs 
over the network.

I follow this guide but it seems 
to be for an old version of FreeRADIUS. I have managed to get FreeRADIUS 
to send syslog packets to my syslog hosts; however I can't tell how to 
specifically split out the FreeRADIUS syslog packets.

The wiki page suggests local1.* but this isn't matching the right 
packets. I'm running FreeRADIUS 2.1.6 so if anyone has a snippet of 
their rsyslog.conf or can simply say how to match the radius syslog 
packets, I'd be very grateful.
