Make sure that keep_hostname(yes) is set on both the 1st syslog-ng server
and the 2nd syslog-ng server.

Subject: [syslog-ng] Forwarding messages

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
from the central syslog host, not the individual devices.  Is there any
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)
enabled, but that isn't working the way I was hoping.
