It would be best using a mysql command to test the connection as you should be able to get more detailed error messages, but some of the more simple tests possible would be:

Try pinging the machine the SQl instance is located on.

Ensure MySQL is running on the specified port 3306 i.e. it has not been modified.

Ensure that the either PC is not blocking inbound connections on that port. If it is, add a firewall exception to allow connections on port 3306. (Or if a test environment and the network is secure, you could disable the Windows firewall altogether to rule that out as a problem).

I'm not aware of any other command that can be run from a base Windows system to test mysql connectivity.

I believe you'd need to install mysql to gain access to the commands needed. The only other way I can think of doing it is via php scripting but for that to work you'd need to install a web hosting environment with PHP which will be just as time consuming.
