It surely is an answer to your initial question :).

But I would feel uhm... uncomforatable with an open MySQL-Port to a
machine sitting inside our network and collecting lots of 'foreign',
unchecked and unencrypted sensor data.

Even if it means we don't get 'real-time' data, we fell back to packing
and scrambling logs at the snort-boxes and fetching them with scp. 

Hmmm... what happened to SnortNet? It looked good with snort 1.6 :)

BYE Andreas
