First things first: This has nothing to do with PHP itself, it's just a configuration issue. You need to check the following things: Is your configuration on PC B set up to the right IP (as host), db, username and password? On PC A, what host is associated with the user? If it's localhost, it won't work. I think that you can set up the same user for localhost and any host with different passwords, make sure that's not the case (or that you have the right password on PC B). Finally, do any firewalls on PC B or PC A or other network constraints let the communication through? This is all fairly basic, but I hope it helps.
