Thread: MySQL issue in 11.1

    Default MySQL issue in 11.1

    Enable remote access to MySQL database server

    I used the link above to enable remote access to mysql for a specific user. But when I try to telnet 3306 or user mysqladmin to connect, both just hang there.

    Any ideas? Using mysql 5.0 on opensuse 11.1

    Hi

    That link is for debian. No configuration parameter bind-address is required. Just make sure that you comment

    Code:
    # skip-networking
    and open port 3306 in your firewall. And - of course - you have to grant permission for the outside user within MySQL.

    Try to connect from the outside with the mysql client. When there is no response at all, then there is no connection, but when it is a permission problem you should get an error message.
