That is essentially what I'm trying to set up on my network.  Basically use
the fact that snort can log it's alerts to a remote SQL server and just have
all the servers send their data there.  The problem I've encountered with this
is that I can get snort to log to a local db (on the same host), but for the
life of me can't figure out why the remote machine is refusing the connection.
