Have you tested out whether or not snort is indeed sending info
to your MySQL db?  ACID only reports what it sees and if there's
no data, it can't show you anything.

There are some ways of doing this.  Basically go to both your
snort boxes and try the mysql command using the username and password
and host and see if you can connect to the db.  if so, then it
works.  Otherwise you might have some problems with the setup.
