External syslog logging support
Feature request for external logging to a remote syslog server.  Beyond the usual security related items like logins/logouts of the root user, and any other important goings on to the device deemed useful, I am particular interested in knowing where the inbound internet traffic on the WAN comes from.  Right now everything just sources from the WAN address as it is what I assume is NATting the mesh IPs to the WAN address.  Kernel iptables logging exists and is really useful via syslog, but that me not be how you've implemented it.

I am also interested in this capability, monitoring and alerting seems like a very strong use case along with the security implications.
