I have MySQL set up on a windows server. I wish to migrate to a new server running WAMP.

I installed WAMP just fine, and now I want to conect to MySQL with the MySQL Admininistrator tool so I can restore my backups.

When I open the MySQL adminitrator and enter the IP address of my new WAMP server,I get an error Number 1130 (Host 'xxxx' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'

How do I configure MySQL in WAMP such that I am allowed to use the MySQL tool to conect as root in order to perform administrative tasks?

Note - security is not the primary concern here - ease of use is. This is only being used internally. I'm quite happy to open it up to ALL remote hosts so that I can use the tool on other machines...
