First off, did you install the SnortCenter agent on the same system?  If
not, that would be your first step.  You would then use the IP address for
your Lan or eth0 as the IP address.  As for the mySQL error.  There should
be a directory in the mySQL install that contains a sample server.script.
Take a look at that to start solving your issue.

Subject: [Snort-users] Cant connect mysql server

I was installing the Snort 1.9.0 on redhat 7.3 using the october 2002
setup guide... The 1.5 guide doesnt seem to work properly for snort
Everything went ok until the 'adding sensors to the SnortCenter Console'
If im using an sensor&database box when im adding a sensor should i use
'localhost' as the sensor IP?
On the snortcenter admin page when i was trying to add a sensor there
were strange characters on the screen, does it has something to do with
netscape? Should i use mozilla instead? And at the end of i clicked on
save and the sensor wasnt added. And 'admin' button never seemed to be

So I rebooted the box, and when I tried to log on the database i got
error 2002 message.. Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket

Before the reboot I wasn't having this error message... Any idea?
