This is fixed in the latest sysklogd package (1.3.31-12.)

*** Bug 5471 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Two RH6.0 machines seem to have no remote syslog after
upgrading to
sysklogd-1.3.31-11.i386.rpm. Downgrading to
fixes remote reception.

I upgraded because I'm having problems with syslog/klog
getting in a bad state while remotely logging a sonicwall
This "bad state" causes login to hang, apparently waiting on
klogd. If I
(re)start klogd (sometimes it's already dead), the login
proceeds. This
machine is also logging 4 jetdirect boxes. During this bad
state, all
logging stops.

The other RH6.0 machine is logging only one jetdirect box
and hasn't
shown this problem.

I enable remote reception by adding the "-r" switch to the
command line
in /etc/rc.d/init.d/syslog.

# See how we were called.
case "$1" in
    echo -n "Starting system logger: "
    # we don't want the MARK ticks
    daemon syslogd -r -m 0
    echo -n "Starting kernel logger: "
    daemon klogd
    touch /var/lock/subsys/syslog
