Hi all,
I know there are plenty of remote connection posts here....but none have
helped me solve my problem.

I have 2 win98 machines on a novell network, both have static IP
addresses, and both machines can ping each other.  One machine is
running a webserver and the other the Mysql server, and I cannot get
scripts on the webserver to connect to MySql.

Using :
$dbcnx = mysql_connect("xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx", "user", "pword");
if (!$dbcnx) {
    echo( "<P>Unable to connect to the " .
    "database server at this time.Try again later</P>" );

RESULTS in the error message Unable to connect to the database

When I do a netstat -a on the PC with MySQL I dont see any listening
ports, should there be.

Is anybody able to shed some light on this for me???
