I have a MySQL database on a VPS that I would like to access through an ODBC connection from more than on location using Windows XP clients.

I followed these guides:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/connector-odbc-configuration-dsn-windows.html

The problem is I keep getting the following error (see attachment):
Connection Error (..) Access denied

First how do fix this error, and how can I access the MySQL db from multiple locations?
