It thinks the $ in your password is the start of a variable.. Use a
different password.

I am having a problem with my snort.conf file:

Would the following line be ok?

output database: alert, mysql, user=snort password=N0womd$!
dbname=snort host= sensor_name=

Obviously this is on one line.  Would IPs work or does it have to have
a hostname?  I keep getting errors when I use the above line:

 FATAL ERROR: Undefined variable name: (/etc/snort/snort.conf:452):

Thanks for any help!!!!
