Hi
i have a client system installed with
MS Windows xp and the ip address of it (i made static also ) as 192.168.1.29

and my server has
MS Windwos 2000 and its ip address is 192.168.1.10
I have installed MySql5.0 latest version on the server and was trying to connect from the client and i was getting this error
" cant connect to mysql server on 192.168.1.10 "

so i have referred to lots of material and many of the similar questions in this forums and in one the solutions ,it was advised to use the below
GRANT ALL
    ON *.*
    TO root@'%' identified by 'password';

and i have tried this and no use.
so i went ahead and also created a user with
user - root
Hostname - 192.168.1.29
password - password

and when i try to connect from the remote client,still the same issue.
please suggest how to go about as this is very important

Hello

Grant again with no password for testing.

GRANT ALL ON *.* TO root@'%'


OR

simply apply:
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
after granting to any user.


Great is our GOD.

OK

Just be sure where you set the GRANT and FLUSH PRIVILEGES, either to your localhost(1.10) computer or to your server(1.29)

>>should i also do the same thing on the client machine also?
No

Just want to ask this:
Are you trying to develop a database program?
Or just connecting via MySql query browser?

hi rion
thanks for ur feedback
well i have used the grant command which was ending "with grant option " and it worked
well i have also diabled all my firewalls(default and installed) and it worked
well now i configured my firewall so i am able to connect on 2 way basis
and also
i guess i need MySql on the client machine to be installed for it to conenct to the server ..

well my suggestions to ones have this problem
1.As the above replies says
         use grant command with root@% or ip address to grant privileges
2.check your firewalls,thats important.What we dont guess will stop,will be blocking the connectivity.
3.Have MySQL also installed on client machine even though we are accessing the database on the server

with these options i guess this error will be solved

thanks rion for your help

I though windows firewall excluded mysql already and I though you already did.

Anyway thanks.
