how did you start syslogd? If it was started from /etc/rc.conf
without modifying the flags for syslogd, it won't work.
The default-flag for syslogd is


>From the man-page:

     -s      Operate in secure mode.  Do not log messages from remote
             machines.  If specified twice, no network socket will be opened
             at all, which also disables logging to remote machines.

You have to disable this option and restart syslogd.
