mysqldump - server to server - all tables?

mysqldump tool is a new one to me, i have been reading the many many MANY uses for it, but one in particular i wish to use, to dump an entire DB to a new DB server.....

I have attemped to use the below string, but nothing happens, so as usual, i blame myself :) for likely mssing something , or miss understanding something

==============================
mysqldump --opt -h 1.1.1.1 -u root  | mysql --host=2.2.2.2 --user=root -C
==============================

now since i want it to copy ALL tables, do i need to specify anything after -C ?, moving the data from server 1.1.1.1. to server 2.2.2.2

i do it in a mysql command prompt and i press enter and all i get is a new line

->

and nothing happens, neither DB has password on it so i didnt include the -p part.

you should include the database name you want to copy on both sides:
mysqldump --opt -h 1.1.1.1 -u root dbname | mysql --host=2.2.2.2 --user=root -C -D dbname

of course, does this return anything:
mysqldump --opt -h 1.1.1.1 -u root dbname

if yes, does this also work:
mysqldump --opt -h 1.1.1.1 -u root dbname > yourfile.sql

if yes, does this work:
mysql --host=2.2.2.2 --user=root -C -D dbname < yourfile.sql

i am running the query on another system  (i am tyig to backup 1.1.1.1 , i am running the query from system 2.2.2.2 using query browser and also trying command prompt)

mysqldump --opt -h 1.1.1.1 -u root tournaments

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'mysqldump --opt -h 1.1.1.1 -u root tournaments' at line 1
