Win32 MyODBC Problem

Win32 MyODBC Problem

Win32 MyODBC Problem

Web Server:
OS: WinNT 4 SP6a
MyODBC: 2.50.36

SQL Server:
OS: WinNT 4 SP6a
MySQL: 3.23.27

A System DSN setup as:

Windows DSN name: DBTEST
MySql Database: dbtest
Server: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
User: my_dbtest_user
Password: my_dbtest_password

When I access the windows DSN with an .asp page I get:

"Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
[TCX][MyODBC]Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)"

I can access the database via a MySQL client so I know it isn't a
permission problem. What stumps me is why it keeps referring to the
MySQL database on localhost and not on the remote machine where MySQL
is actually running.

I have tried:
 1) Re-installing MyODBC
 2) Creating new DSN with users that have more permissions.
 3) Creating new DSN using a NetBIOS name in the server field.
 4) Creating new DNS using a DNS name in the server field.

All have had the same results.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you entered the port number into your ODBC setup? usually this is 3306
