[syslog-ng] syslog-ng not writing to specified path

Hello all,  hope you are all doing great.

I have set up syslog-ng on a host and I am able to see packets on tcpdump
but syslog-ng is not wriiting to the specified paths.

I have checked firewall rules, filters, write permissions at the path. I
have another host on the same VLAN with the same config that is able to
receive packets and write to the destination.

what I am I missing ?

*version used:*
syslog-ng 3.9.1
Installer-Version: 3.9.1
Module-Directory: /usr/local/lib/syslog-ng
Module-Path: /usr/local/lib/syslog-ng
Enable-Debug: off
Enable-GProf: off
Enable-Memtrace: off
Enable-IPv6: on
Enable-Spoof-Source: off
Enable-TCP-Wrapper: off
Enable-Linux-Caps: off

syslog-ng -Fvde shows :
[2017-08-03T13:57:20.214552] Module loaded and initialized successfully;

Any help is appreciated.

Vijay Amrut.
