No. In this context syslog is used to send log messages across the network. You 
probably don't want to bother configuring this at all.. but if you do you'll 
want to configure it to send log messages to an actual computer capable of 
receiving them - this could be a Mac, Mac's run syslogd by default, you just 
need to reconfigure it to accept incoming log messages from the network.

Your router, which sounds like it's the airport express.

I wonder why you aren't just using DHCP to configure this stuff... I guess you 
need a fixed IP address because your printer is too old to know how to 
advertise its services with Bonjour, etc?
