Add the following code in the /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf file, but change <IP> to the IP of the FortiSIEM Super/Worker/Collector which will receive the syslog:

destination d_fortisiem { tcp("<IP>" port(514));};

log {

source(s_bro_dns);

source(s_bro_dhcp);

log { filter(f_bro_headers); };

log { destination(d_fortisiem);};

};
