Make sure you set the permissions on mysql to allow the other hosts to
connect and write the data to that DB

Subject: [Snort-users] logging snort logs to remote mysql box

Hello all,

I am trying to setup multiple snort sensors to log to one remote mysql
box.  Do i just edit the snort.conf file for each respective sensor and
point it to the remote mysql box under the line:

output database: log, mysql, user=snort password=password dbname=snortdb

Is there anything else i need to edit to get this remote logging
working?  I appreciate any help guys and gals!
