Hello all,

I have Snort 2.0.4 running on a single windows 2000 machine, with a local 
MySQL database and using ACID to display the results. Everything is working 
great. Now, I'm trying to add an additional sensor to my configuration.

On the remote machine, I have installed Snort, configured it to run as a 
Win2k Service, edited my Snort.conf file, and used the existing MySQL 
database as the "ouput plugin". However, when I attempt to connect to the 
remote database, I get an error, saying

" E♦Host '198.1.xxx.xxx' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL 

Connection to host lost."

On the remote machine running MySQL, I have ensured that the 'My.ini" file 
"bind-address" is commented out, and I have checked the Snort /Service 
/Install Parameters to ensure that they are correct...

Any suggestions?
