The VMware deployment is quite complex:

However, assuming you just want to capture the syslog, have you configured a UDP input on your heavy forwarder/indexer?
The TA wont set this up for you.

If you have, then its all the usual suspects to check next, addresses/firewalls/routes etc,

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!
