Troubleshoot a Remote Logging Configuration on Linux

`rsyslog` gathers, parses, and filters logs by default on the majority of Linux systems. These logs can also be sent to a remote logging server, where they are stored in the defined files — as long as the appropriate configuration is used on both the remote and forwarding host. In this lab, someone has attempted to set up remote logging, but both the logs and application server are experiencing issues. Discover and resolve the problems so `rsyslog` works on the appropriate port and logs are being sent. _This lab is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat._
