    its a longshot, but do u by any chance have a fire wall that blocks the 3306 port... i know i had the same problem when i set up my fire wall for the first time.... try to see if there is any configuration needed to be done in order for the fire wall to allow connection via port 3306....

    hope that this helps a bit.
    best of luck.

    Angry try this...

    start mysqld (or safe_mysqld) with this param
    that should help connecting a client to a remote mysql server easily.
