Can't connect to mysql server
I am a beginner delphi developer, I downloaded the MYDAC software for me to connect to mysql databases using Myconnection and Mytable in delphi 5. Everything works really fine since I am connecting locally on the same machine. I had MYsql on my computer and delphi. I can add, delete and edit data using the DBNavigator button on delphi. But the problem is?? I want to connect to the database server using the same procedure using TMYconnection and TMytable, I indicated on the server the IP address of the computer (ex. 126.96.36.199) and it says cannot connect to the mysql server on 188.8.131.52 (10060).. Can anyone help me with this problem??? I need to finish my project in 2 weeks times..... BTW i'm working on windows 98 and database server is running on linux platform.

Can you connect from the Windows machine to the linux machine using *ANY* mysql client (not just your delphi program). For all you know, this might be a permissions or firewall issue.
