I know this is probably a newb issue, but I've not done this on the mac before. I'm trying to connect to a remote MySQL database. I have the server name and the port it's running on, also the user name and password. I've confirmed that the connection info is correct. I downloaded both Navicat and MySQL Tools. Both tools tell me I can't connect to that server. I also tried connecting by IP address. I'm not sure if this works with MySQL, but I can typcially test my connection info with Oracle by telneting to the sqlnet port. So I tried to connect to the MySQL port and got nothing. I feel like I'm being blocked somehow on my side but not really sure. Any thoughts? Oh yeah, I'm running 10.4. Going through an airport wireless router and a cable modem. I guess that info would be helpful.
