Call me lazy if you want, you're probably right in this case. I've been spoiled by Navicat. It's not that I'm uncomfortable taking care of DB business with an ssh client, it's faster and a lot more fun with a DB client. Does anyone know of something similar to Navicat that's open source or on the cheap? I need to be able to browse from the root and see all DB's defined on a server, and then do everything you would expect. The browse from the root part is where all of the clients (except Navicat) that I have tried lack in functionality.

Also, I don't do PHP or ASP. I would prefer a non web application solution in this case.

Thanks!

How about Mysql workbench?  http://www.mysql.com/products/workbench/

I attached a screenshot where I'm logged on as root to mysql on the same machine.  For connecting to remote databases, I suggest you don't use root, but a user that has privileges to view all databases.

By the way, I don't use Mysql workbench extensively, as I prefer the command line.  But that tool might be right for you.
