[nycbug-talk] FreeBSD syslog.conf quickie

A quick question on the syntax for defining a remote system logging to a remote syslog server.
I have a number of routers I want to send their syslogs to a FreeBSD system. I've checked all the firewall rules and know that not to be a problem. My question is, in the syslog.conf file itself, how to I define a host to log to a specific logfile? I've RTFM, checked Google, and checked everything else I thought might have been mucking up the waters, but can't seem to get this straight.
I'm looking to get all syslogs for hostname "ssr" to go to /var/log/router.log
In my /etc/syslog.conf, I have the following entry:
>From man 5 syslog.conf:
A hostname specification of the form `#+hostname' or `+hostname' means
the following blocks will be applied to messages received from the speci-
fied hostname. Alternatively, the hostname specification `#-hostname' or
`-hostname' causes the following blocks to be applied to messages from
any host but the one specified. If the hostname is given as `@', the
local hostname will be used. As for program specifications, multiple
comma-separated values may be specified for hostname specifications.
I've tried using +ssr, +ssr.*, and a few other variations with no luck.
Am I just reading the examples wrong? (In my defense, I've had a headache for the past 3 days, which hasn't helped..)
