mySQL newbie question

mySQL newbie question

I telnet to a remote server who have mysql database installed. They have freeBSD OS. I was able to get to mysql prompt a few days back but for the past 2 days it just refuses the connection & gives me error that :
ca'nt connect to mysql server on localhost(XX). If I run the mysqladmin script (./mysqladmin - status) it gives the above message + Check that mysqld is running on localhost and that the port is XXXX.
You can check this by doing 'telnet localhost XXXX'
If I try that it give permission denied.
Any ways by which I can get the mysqld up & running? or how do I go about it now?
