Once in your telnet session, from the command line type
'telnet localhost 3306' or 'telnet 3306'
Keep in mind this only proves the host is there, it doesn't disprove. The
machine may not know itself as localhost(unlikely) or the mysql server may
not be living on 3306.
If you get some weird characters(most likely the version and some other
chars) then the server is itself, is the mysql host.

Subject: [PHP] Help with MySQL.

Hello everyone,

I need some help with telneting to my web host and figuring out what the
host name address is to mysql. 

My web host (which is my ISP) knows that they have MySQL but they don't know
the host name address. I want to know if there is a sentence I can type into
the telnet box to see what my MySQL host name address is? I tried 'whereis
mysql' and it came back 'mysql: /usr/bin/mysql /usr/lib/mysql
/usr/share/mysql /usr/man/man1/mysql.1.gz' so I know I have it, but whats
the host name address? Thanks dudes!
