So I have purchased Kevin's book and am just starting. I have PHP and mySQL installed and working. I am doing this at work right now on our peer to peer network. I have them installed on a WIN2K machine with IIS 5.0. I can login to mySQL when I am on the machine locally, but when I try and login from my machine it tells me that I cannot. Here is the exact error message that I am recieving. Any help is appreciated.

error message:

e:\mysql\bin>mysql -h ben -u root -p
enter password: *****
ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'root@WIILIS'
(Using password: YES)

WILLIS is the name of my machine on the network. I am running WIN98 and have BEN's C drive where everything is installed mapped to E.
