No, it's not - at least not from the "outside".

As you could see even from your conf file (which is a modified version
of the default one) the default is "allow everyone to login from the
this machine using unix domain sockets, IPv4 or IPv6 and _do not_
require a password". Now, the next lines are added by your DB
administrators and are specific to your configuration.

And the next line is relevant to you. It still says you need to supply
a password.

So, when you do supply a password, what is the error message? And
could you look in the server's logs and see what's the error message
