MySQL and Windows9x ODBC Problem

MySQL and Windows9x ODBC Problem

MySQL and Windows9x ODBC Problem

I am having a strange problem with the ODBC driver for MySQL under Windows98. I am using myodbc-2.50.29-win95.

If I start mysql with 'mysqld -Sg' I can access the SQL tables from a Windows98 computer fine. The problem is that no matter what user/host combo I enter into the user database on MySQL I cannot connect (always get 'access denied') when running the Daemon under normal operation.

The REALLY strange thing is that the access denied message occurs (I think) primarily because the ODBC driver is not sending my IP address (it just says 'craig@ access denied' when it should say 'craig@ access denied').

I have used the '%' wildcard in the host field but that doesn't do any good. Any ideas on this?

Thank You,
Craig Shortreed
