Did you give your snort host permission on the mysql box? You can check
by  mysql -hx.x.x.x -usnort -p snort where x is the ip of your mysql box

Here is what I put in snort.conf to tell it to log to another box:
output database:log,mysql,user=root password=xxxxxxxx* dbname=snort
I start snort w/the following cmd: snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
I get an error saying access denied, password=yes
I  got a pcap from the authentication attempt and snort is trying to log
in to the correct db as snort and WRSW\ZUS as the password. This is not
the password I specified in the snort.conf file. Any ideas?
