I have a Solaris 10 Virtaul Server running under VMWare.  The system has MySQL installed on it and runs fine.  However when we try to connect on Port 3306 it refuses connection, there is no firewalling in place on the machine attempting connection and the Solaris system is not firewalled at all,  yet still we cannot complete this ODBC connection on Port 3306.  We can ping the machine and telnet to port 23 with no issue.

As per the given output mysql is listening on Localhost, that is the reason you are not able to connect it from remote machine.

Please follow this to enable remote connection to your mysql server.

Thanks for the response upanwar, I took a good look at this and have made some limited progress.  I would be grateful if you have any further advice regarding the points I have raised below.

Thanks again

Alan

The port has been changed (now 32782) and you can now telnet over to the solaris box.
When running the ODBC driver, ‘snoop’ shows the connection being made.
But nothing is then fed back as though the Solaris box is not looking for / picking up this connection?
Are there any services that should be running to pick this connection up and if so how can we test them?

It seems that now your server is listening on network interface so Its getting the connection but have you grant the permission to your dalabase to connect remotly.

I would suggest the GUI tool to connect mysql database remotly and query your database. You may aware some GUI tool and I have also found for you.

Install one of these tool on your windows box, connect your database and query.
