Enabled remote syslog to greylog but no messages are received

I just setup a greylog VM to start a central log collection server.
My esxi host got configured pretty easily and I can see the logs in greylog almost instantly. I went into my 2.3.3-RELEASE pfsense box Selected LAN interface (instead of binding to all) and selected my internal greylog host "172.16.0.114" with no port since UDP 514 is the default listening port.
I have restarted the syslog service after resetting the configuration but I still can't manage to get the logs exported into greylog. Does anyone have experience or am I missing something? I already checked and the firewall rule is allowing TCP/UDP 514 but since I selected the same LAN interface as where greylog is hosted I did not think it was going to matter (does it?)
Thanks for the help.

simple sniff on your lan interface would tell you if being sent..
