How to add a non-root user and login with the same in Navicat for MySQL?

I have installed Navicat for MySQL on Window Server. In Navicat first i created a connection for localhost. After logging in with the localhost, i created a user for database "test" with username as "test" and host as "%". But when i try to log in with the user "test", it gives me error, "Access denied for user "test@localhost".

Is this the right way to create a user?

Also I am unable to login to MySQL remotely?

Do we need to do any settings for remote connections for MySQL?

Instead if % provide an IP adderss of the system.

Also after creating a user, always Flush the MySQL privileges, sometime a MySQL restart, but thats not needed here.

Hope this helps

Have you tried it using sql?
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/create-user.html
CREATE USER 'username'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

then ensure to GRANT permissions to specific databases|tables for the user if not going to grant *all* to basically create a remote dab without exposing root beyond localhost access which is a best practice.

You can limit this to an IP address if needed but that is not a requirement to get this to work.
