WINE Applications not talking to MyODBC

I am running a native Windows application through WINE, and it needs a MySQL database.   Unfortunately for some reason, it cannot connect.  

-I have installed MySQL in Linux, and have verified the connection is good through MyODBC.
-Thinking it may be an application issue, I have installed SQLyog in WINE, and it cannot connect either to the ODBC running in Linux.
-I have installed ODBC in WINE and tried to use the Windows versions of MyODBC and ODBC, neither of which connected to the database either.
-I have hooked the UnixODBC library to the built-in odbc32.dll in winecfg.
-I have duplicated the ODBC.INI registry key and all of its contents from a working Windows machine to the WINE registry.

So assuming that all WINE applications are giving me a connection error being unable to communicate to MyODBC, how do I resolve this issue?

Thanks for any help you might have.

I think I rememebr that WINE runs in ts own virtual space, right? If this is the case, maybe it is not seeing MySQL server in that space and you need to make a genuine network connection from wine to your server...

The issue was due to a misconfiguration in the file: /var/lib/mysql.soc that was overlooked. Thank you for your response fibo.
