Have you enabled the TCP protocol on your computer. Also do you happen to have a firewall that might get in the way of you connecting to the server perhaps?
Heyas,depending on the errormessage you get, it may be MySQL itself preventing your to sign in. Best would be to sign in locally and check the mysql.user table:Access to MySQL is regulated on a host/user combination. If the host value is '%', access from outside is allowed. Typically, root access is limited to "localhost", you have to consider yourself what you want to do: open up root access or create a dedicated remote user.regards/M
