On a simple Windows LAN the computer name of the laptop machine with the MYSQL instance is "CHARLES"
This connection string isn't working for me:
"server=CHARLES;Uid=root;database=db001; Port=3306; Persist Security Info=True;pwd=xxxxx"
Anyone have a suggestion for connecting from another PC on the network? (I'm using Visual 2005.)
Can you access the machine over the network at all?
Maybe try to add "Protocol=socket;" to the connection string.
Tough to guess on this though...
Any error messages?
It was the firewall who didn't let me through. It's working now.
Sir.... Your Problem... was solved.....
Can i know how you solved it???
