I thought of locally collecting bro logs and have a cron job 
transferring the log file(s) in regular intervals. If the network is 
down for 5 minutes, no problem, the log files will be transferred the 
next time the cronjob runs.

if you use "rsync -e ssh", rsync uses SSH as transport, that's correct. 
But rsync has a standalone daemon mode and does not need SSH to be used.
