How do I connect a Win95 Client to MySQL on an NT Server, Please?

How do I connect a Win95 Client to MySQL on an NT Server, Please?

How do I connect a Win95 Client to MySQL on an NT Server, Please?

(OP)
I have successfully installed a binary edition of MySQL on my NT Server and can connect locally and create databases and tables OK.

I now want to connect from a Win95 client on the network but cannot. I have the C:\mysql\bin\ directory on my server mapped as the F: drive on the client. Using the MSDOS command prompt from the client, I am trying to start mysql with the command mysqld -h servername. I get a message that it cannot find a file from the share (I think! - I'm not at my network right now) directory on c:\mysql\share?\english.

I am wondering if the Win32 distribution is not configured to work client/server.

Can anybody help?

RE: How do I connect a Win95 Client to MySQL on an NT Server, Please?

Well, seems to me like you have one thing missing: You need to add users and allow them to reach your database from other hosts.
It is recommended that you connect your users to databases you create on your own and NOT the system database.
In order to add a user, you will need to issue this:

insert into user (Host,User,Password,Select_priv,Insert_priv,Update_priv,Delete_priv) values
( '%', <username>, PASSWORD(<password string>), 'Y,'Y','Y','Y')

You will need to reload the grant tables, and then you will be able to log in from a remote host using the user/password combination you have entered.

Good Luck!
