Assuming the MySQL database is on the ACID console, just one line:

permit tcp host [sensor address] host [ACID console address] eq 3306 

This will allow the sensor to make the connection to MySQL, which is all
it needs to do.  Of course, if this is an inside/outside scenario, you
might consider a different method of deploying your sensor so that the
MySQL flow is not traversing an untrusted network.

Our sensor needs to send alerts to the ACID console that's behind a
Cisco PIX firewall. What ports/services need to be opened? Any info you
can provide will be greatly appreciated.
