Connect to mysql database with read-only mode hosted on different server

Hi Experts!

I need to connect to mysql database from different server (basically any server) in read only mode and access just one table. How to do it? First of all I need to use this piece of code in my phpmyadmin:
CREATE USER 'user'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'user';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'user'@'%' WITH GRANT OPTION;

Open in new window

Is it enough to just modify this code somehow or do I need to do something more?
Thanks.

In phpMyAdmin, each database has a 'Privileges' tab where you can choose the privileges you want a user to have on that database after you create the user.  You can restrict the user to having only Select privileges which is basically Read-Only.  Using the phpMyAdmin edit screen is a lot easier than trying to figure out the privileges list yourself.
