    Unanswered: Windows Client connecting to Linux Server

    Hello,

    I have installed MySQL on both Windows XP and in a Linux box.

    MySQL server is up and running on Linux box.

    Now can I use the MySQL client from "Windows XP" to connect to the server running on "Linux"? I dont see anything that says "we cannot connect" in the manual.

    Anyway. Imnt able to connect !

    C:\\MySQL 4.0.16\Binary\bin>mysql -h 129.15.78.118 -u yanhong -p
    Enter password: *******
    ERROR 2003: Can't connect to MySQL server on '129.15.78.118' (10065)

    Please let me know whats the issue ?
    Thanks,
    Prasanna

    Are you connecting through ODBC?

    Can you connect to the server from the mysql client from trhe server?

    Does your user have the right GRANTs to connect to the database?

    Is your server up and listening to the right port?

    Yes it does.

    Yes it is up and listening to the right port.

    Well, Im using the "mysql client" that comes along with the installation of mysql to connect to the MySQL server on Linux.

    My primary question is to know if we can use the "mysql client that comes along with the installtion of mysql in windows" to connect to the "mysql server running on linux".

    If the answer to the question is "yes", well then I should be able to manage !

    Thanks again,
    Prasanna
