I get the following error when I trie to connect to mysql with mysqlgui.exe
Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Can't Connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)
But mysql server is running (using mysqld.exe) on my win98 machine (The green light of WinMysqlAdmin is) and I can ping localhost.
Can anyone help me with this. My my.ini is pasted below.

#Read the MySQL Manual for instructions

Create a file C:my.cnf with the following contents ONLY (yes, slashes are pointed the right way):
MySQL looks for itself in the default directory of C:mysql on Win32.

I connect with the internet trough a gateway. In my tcp/ip settings of my networkcard (connected with the ethernet), I had my DNS enabled. After disableing my DNS, everything worked.

sounds like localhost was resolving to 127.0.0.1 but you've specified 192.168.0.2
c:windowsHosts.sam editied and renamed to Hosts would prolly sort that
