I have a hosting service through a third party and they have set up remote access to my MySQL database for me. I downloaded the program off of www.mysql.com and ran mysql.exe and got a prompt. I then try to connect, but it won't let me. The prompt already looks like this: mysql>

Then I type -h hostname -u username -p

and it doesn't work. It says can't connect and results in an error. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
