Could you look to generalizing it so that other web-based products could be hooked in instead? eg. an "API" whereby each base site can choose the URL they want to use, and base can pass on attributes like ip address to that URL. (we have our own "asset tracking" system internally, and being able to link it into base would be very nice. Same goes for our Nessus reports) -- Cheers Jason Haar Information Security Manager, Trimble Navigation Ltd.
