Another newbie question. Well from a totally new person using mysql i was able to install mysql on my pc. But now i want to use Toad to connect to mysql from another pc on our home network. I have created a new user as someuser@ipAddressOfSecondPc and granted all privileges. Then i open port 3306 on the PC with mysql. However when i try to connect i get Access denied for user 'someuser'@'ipAddressOfSecondPc' (using password: YES).I've google and searched for a solution. I've read some other solutions to similar issues but with no luck. Any help would be appreciated. So basically i just want to connect from either PC in our home network. Thanks to all who respond.
