    Error when trying to network MySQL5


    This reflects development on an earlier thread.

    I am trying to get a Delphi 6 generated application resident on an XP box (jb1 the 'server') run from a W2k box (jb2 the client) to access (read & write records) on a MySQL 5.0 database resident on the server box. I use SQLDirect as a server interface.

    When I run the application from jb2, having disabled Dr Watson I get the following error messages:

    1)* The exception unknown software exception (0x0eedfade) occurred in the application at 0x7c4ea4e1
    2)* Exception ESDMySQLError in module gglpamf.exe at 00119F5C Error 2003 Can't connect to MySQL server on local host (10061).

    MySQLAdministrator server information page sees the server as (localhost) and the client as (jb1) meanwhile I have been thinking of jb1 as the server machine and (jb2) as the client.*

    The program runs perfectly when run from jb1 (or is it perhaps from localhost?). Both Localhost and jb1 reside on the same XP box so I am a little confused as to what is happening there, but everything works.

    Basic networking between jb1 and jb2 also works. I can run a D6 genned program resident on jb1 fom jb2 to access (read and write) to a file (parms.ini) resident on jb1.

    At the moment I'm pretty much flummoxed by this and would appreciate any ideas about why I cannot connect to the MySQL Server (on localhost).
