[Snort-users] Trying to figure something if the following makes sense or stupid

I'm located in one hospital of many hospitals in the organization which
corp has firewall for our internet connection where there is a router
here that links us up.

I have the Ethernet port of this router in a hub where I have a second
router also connected to this hub.  On this second router, the other
Ethernet is connected to a cat4006 which I span the traffic to another
hub (lets call it hub2). It is here that I have my snort and other tools
running.  Snort logs to a server that has base and snare installed and
to the windows event manager where snare sends email alerts on certain
types of alerts from snort.  At this point I have snort fine tune with
very little false positives.

On router two, I'm using cisco acl's to control what can come in and
what can go out through this router. I have the router configured where
it logs all denies to a kiwislog server.  Most of the time the logging
is quite on the incoming side of the router but there has beend a few
cases it has been hit.  Case in point, one of the Symantec servers in
corp decided it wanted to scan our network.  I noticed this one night
when I needed to tweak the acl's when I did a show log.

Would it be possible and any pointers, where I could have the kiwi
syslog send alerts to base so these events could possible be correlated
to snort alerts and be investiaged/searchable in the same system.

Just wondering
