These two conflict. the system source will already bind to port 514,
both on udp and on tcp, so the s_remote source will not be able
to. Therefore, nothing will ever arrive from there, and as a
consequence, nothing will make it into the logpile destination, either.

In general, if you run syslog-ng in the foreground, with verbose mode
and debugging enabled (-Fvde), it will tell you a lot more about what is
