I have a Linux-based MySQL database that I need to backup.  I know NOTHING about Linux but need to make a quick backup of a database.  My only accessibility to the database is through Windows.

Without having to buy some third-party software do I have options for being able to authenticate and back a database up?

Worst case scenario, I can connect through VB.NET...but that is not preferable.

I copied the exe & pdb files to the server.  Having to run it remotely.  Used the command line and it worked like a charm.
