I have a php page on server #1 trying to access a database on server #2. What do I put in the following blanks:

$hostname: ___________ (have tried IP, http, localhost, nothing works)
$username: blah
$password: blah
$database: _____________

$link=mysql_connect($hostname, $user, $pass) or die("Failure to communicate with database");

$close=mysql_select_db($database, $link);

All I get is the "Failure to communicate....." message.

Server #1: ellerweb.eller.arizona.edu
Server #2: datamonster.sbs.arizona.edu
$database is cassy, but do I need to add anything to that?

I've tried asking two people who are really good at this and they have no answers.
