You need to install rsyslog daemon on radius machine.
Then in /etc/rsyslog.conf 

# Save radius logs into file

local1.*     /var/log/radius/radius.log

# All to syslog server

*.*          @ip_address_of_your_syslog_server

It works fine form me

Hi all,

i ve configured Freeradius on my server and i would like to forward
authentication log to an external server.
I saw in the forum that i have to change Logdir from file to syslog but
where do i have to specify the destination server?
