Hmmm... seams like the user you are using to connect to database have no

Try this as mysql root user on mysql server:

grant select, update, insert, delete on `<acid_db_name>`.* to
"<username>"@"<hostname>" identified by '<password>';

	<acid_db_name> is the database name of your acid db
	<username> is the mysql user you are using to connect to the 
		   mysql server
	<hostname> is the hostname or ip addr of the remote sensor
	<password> is the password for <username>

hope this helps ;)
