Hrm...  Sounds like a config issue with snort.

Try this:

	*  Verify that snort is working.  'snort -vade' should show traffic on
your network.
	*  Check your snort.conf.  Check HOME_NET and EXTERNAL_NET, to be sure
they are set for the correct ranges.
	*  If the MySQL host and snort host are different, make sure you can
connect from one to the other.

Hope that helps!
