Using MySQL-Front on Win XP machine to connect to MySQL on Fedora Core5 box on 192.168.0.xxx network.
After the timeout I get:
MySql Connection Failed: 2003 Can't connect to MySQL Server on '192.168.0.1' (10054) <== not sure what 10054 is
To fill-in some detail:
mysqld IS running on server
can ping to 192.168.0.1 from 192.168.0.23
mysqladmin -u root -p*** ping reports "mysqld is alive"
nmap localhost shows port 3306/tcp open mysql
my.conf does NOT have a line for skip-networking - further, at mysql prompt: SHOW VARIABLES LIKE "skip-networking"; shows the value is OFF
Can build db's on the Fedora Box, add tables, fields and values all with no problems.
But cannot connect to MySql from the Windows Box
Any ideas where to go next?
