    remote mysql connection error

    I've been helping a friend with his website, and I am trying to remote connect to his site. I looked up his IP and have the right credentials, but when I try to connect I get this:
    Can't connect to MySQL server on '[his IP]' (110)

    I used whois.sc to look it up, do I need to do anything special?

    do you have an mysql account that can connect from a remote computer? If his site is hosted, the host may hae disabled all other connection than localhost

    I wish my computer would do what I want it to.
    Not what I tell it to do...
