ewwwwwww.  Change proxy server :)  Squid is really nice to syslog with :)

If its a UNIX box you could still run syslog-ng, get your proxy to log to a 
pipe device.


If its not even windoze supports pipes and you could write some code to 
generate the simple UDP syslog messages and send them to a central server.

Remove FTP from the loop, or any file transfer protocol; even the network 
filesystems.  You are making it too complicated.
