I am receiving messages from 5 devices that I need to send to a remote machine for 
specific analysis.  Right now, the messages are getting interpreted as coming 
from the central syslog host, not the individual devices.  Is there any option 
to tell syslog-ng to forward as the original hostname, or should I focus on 
looking for options in the other system?  I have the keep_hostname(yes) option 
enabled, but that isn't working the way I was hoping.
