Why am I unable to send events to a syslog server with my current heavy forwarder configuration?

Path Finder

Background

I tried to configure sending events to a syslog server. Here is my configurations
outputs.conf

[syslog:my_syslog]
server = 10.10.10.2:514
type = tcp
disabled = false

transforms.conf

[send_to_syslog]
REGEX = .
DEST_KEY = _SYSLOG_ROUTING
FORMAT = my_syslog

props.conf

[sourcetype::access_common]
TRANSFORMS-route = send_to_syslog

My syslog server's syslog.conf

*.* /var/log/messages

I can simulate a TCP connection on port 514 to my syslog server. However, the events are just not coming in. Any advice?

Added Splunk heavy forwarder using:

splunk enable app SplunkForwarder

./splunk add forward-server mysyslog:514 -auth admin:changeme
thanks
