Hi anyone _EVER_ able to get mysqlbinlog to remotely read a server's binlog?
I have read http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/mysqlbinlog.html
and the command I use is:
=====================
mysqlbinlog --read-from-remote-server  --database=mydbname --start-datetime="2008-06-11 00:00:00" --stop-datetime="2008-06-16 23:59:59" -hremotehost -umyusername -pmypassword -rmyresult.txt
====================
remote host running default 3306.
and if I ssh to the server then I can read it successfully for that time period, by specifying the path & name of input binlogs.
however it did not give me result, but poping me the manpage of mysqlbinlog.
It looks like the format I am using is wrong womewhere.
Do I need to specify binlog path when reading remotely? --I don't think it makes sense in this way.
so where is wrong?

You are not listing the log_filenames where it should look.
Presumably when you are on the local machine you are in the directory where the log files are when you run the command.

Try this where /var/mysql/log is the location for the binlog files.
mysqlbinlog --read-from-remote-server  --database=mydbname --start-datetime="2008-06-11 00:00:00" --stop-datetime="2008-06-16 23:59:59" -hremotehost -umyusername -pmypassword -rmyresult.txt /var/mysql/log/*
