[syslog-ng] Forward syslog messages unchanged

I found a thread from about 5 years ago where someone 
wanted to forward messages untouched to another system,
but there never was a follow up to say if it was possible.
I need to do that, but the messages are still getting to the 
remote system with my ip address as the source.  I have 
the keep_hostnames(yes) global option set, and I'm still 
having the problem.  Is there any other option I may not 
know about to do this?
Do I need to set up another syslog-ng enabled server 
and have that system read from there instead of me 
forwarding the events right to that machine's port?
