[opensuse] Syslog-ng can't forward

Syslog is great for debugging!

Anyway, I altered the syslog-ng config by enabling the two lines
and altering the IP address so I now have

# Enable this and adopt IP to send log messages to a log server.
destination logserver { udp("" port(514)); };
log { source(src); destination(logserver); };

That's the IP address of my log server on the lcoal network and I have a
screen devoted to tailing though that with pretty colourization ...

However my local /var/log/messages reports

Jan 5 08:23:13 BigBoy syslog-ng[2693]: I/O error occurred while
writing; fd='10', error='Connection refused (111)'
Jan 5 08:23:13 BigBoy syslog-ng[2693]: Connection broken; time_reopen='60'

Eh? This is UDP isn't it? How can the connection be refused?

I don't have a firewall enabled on the "BigBoy" or on the syslog server.

The remote syslog server machine is running Mandriva and no I'm not
going to convert it to OpenSuse just to get syslog working. It handles
other logs & sources OK.

What now? Where should I bee looking, what should I be looking for?
