[syslog-ng] udp Error binding socket;

is an IP address on your syslog-ng machine? or is the IP 
address of the remote machine?

the source {} config option tells syslog-ng which IP address to listen on, 
you do not need to enter the IP address of the remote host.

I have an error when I try to use a remote source 
I'm under RedHas AS3 Syslog2rc1.
my config is : 
source s_remote_fw {
         udp(ip( port(514));

And the error is :
Error binding socket; addr='AF_INET(', error='Cannot assign requested address (99)'
Error initializing source driver; source='s_remote_fw'

Thanks for your help
