MySQL question

RT-Users:

I am trying to connect to the MySQL database on my RT system using the MyODBC
package on a Windows server; however my connection invariably fails.

Does anyone know if MySQL, as downloaded as a RPM package, has the
LocalNetworkingOnly option set to no or yes?

I don’t believe it is set by default. Make sure that rt_user has rights
to access the db from the host RT is running on.

DB

I’m sorry, I meant to say the following; please padron me:

  1. I have rt 3.4.1 set up on a Fedora Core 3 machine, and RT is running fine.

  2. I have installed the MyODBC connector on this machine.

  3. I have installed the MyODBC connector on a Windows 2000 server.
    It is from this machine that I want to access RT.

  4. On the Windows machine, I have the ODBC set up as follows:

    Data Source Name: RT3
    Description: MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver DSN
    Server: 172.16.0.16 (the ip address of my rt server)
    User: rt_user
    Password: ***** (my rt-user password on MySQL)
    Database: rt3

    When I try to conenct I get the following error:

    [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Can’t connect to MySQL server on
    ’172.16.0.16’(10065)

  5. rt_user can access RT from the host RT is running on.

Does anybody have a clue as to how to set up MyODBC?

Thanks in advance,

Uhmm, actually I should be posting this to a MySQl mailing list.

Pardon me again.
