I have a question about mysql settings http://serverfault.com/questions/94054/remote-connections-and-mysql-on-ubuntu/94088#94088 now i want to figure out why i cannot connect.
I made sure bind-address was commented out. I can ping the server within the VM but i cannot ping it from within the VM using
mysqladmin --protocol=tcp --host=self_ip ping. I also followed along and check if my ports were open and they look like they are. I setup samba on that VM and can access that with no problem as well. It looks like ubuntu does not have a firewall either (i figured this out before) so i am stumped why the server isnt allowing my connection.
Apparently the config file works on another person side http://www.pastie.org/742545
I am using Ubuntu 6.06 LTS just because of 'support' reasons. So hopefully this will be 'easy'?
