You just need the mysql libs, so yes, compile snort with the -mysql and
it will find the mysql libs if you have them in the default location.
Otherwise you may have to specify the location. As a suggestion, to be a
little bit more secure, I would run stunnel between the 2 devices and
let mysql run on top of that.

Hello Michael,

I am installing snort on proxy and mysql on other host
I probably need mysql client to run on the snort host
any ideas ?
