    Are you using SRX Series devices for the Juniper End? If so these will assist you.


    NetNet: You have to tell the SRX and the Server they arent local and how they need to communicate log files securely under most countries secuiry laws (CC FIPS etc).

    You will need an interface ip address on the Juniper that is included across the vpn to reach the syslog server.


    Once you have a valid address you can test this using ping sourced from that interface

    ping interface ge-0/0/0.0


    and then also configure your syslog stanza to use that ip address as the source

    set system syslog source-address
