   Hi!

This can be due to several reasons
1) remote hostname is unknown to the calling host. -> Solved by altering dns records or adding the IP and hostname to hosts file.
2) Firewall is blocking the caller host to connect to the remote host.
3) Security in mysql on  the remote host does not allow the calling host to connect.
