I don't know where to go next. Ubuntu/MySQL 5.1. I need to connect/login from remote dynamic ip pc's.
I edit my.cnf, bind-address= myip, a comment in this file says skip-networking not used by default anymore.
I pull up a mysql> prompt, and run a restart.
I run 'update user set host='*' where user='myname';
but always connection denied
