Double check the connection string: http://www.connectionstrings.com/mysql/
If your connection string is correct, can you share more details like did this ever work, is this a new install, et cetera...

Other things to check include whether or not MySQL is running on default port.  If it is not, you will need to specify the port with host.  If I remember correctly, it will be IP:port in TOAD's host configuration.

the connection string should be correct, since it's entered in a toad window.

This is a new mysql database. I can use Toad to connect to another old mysql database. I'm not sure if port 3306 is open, and don't know how to check, and don't know if firewall etc.

One thing I know is that I can connect to mysql database through Adminer.

We are using Toad for mysql 7.0.0.2038 and mysql server 5.1. I installed mysql Workbench 6 and am able to successfully connect to the database but still unable using Toad. Im not sure how to view the connection string within Toad. Any suggestions? Thanks.
