mysql network connection problem

mysql network connection problem

I try to make a connection to a mysql database under hp-ux 10.20 and 11.00.
I extracted the binary file mysql from mysql-3.23.53-hp-hpux10.20-hppa1.1.tar.gz for hp-ux 10.20 and mysql-3.23.53-hp-hpux11.00-hppa2.0n.tar.gz for hp-ux 11.00 (downloaded form
When I try to make a network connection:
./mysql ???h xxxx ???u user ???ppass
on the hp-ux 11.00 computer it works but under hp-ux 10.20 I get the following error:

ERROR 2005: unknown MySQL Server Host ???xxxx??? (0)

Does anybody know why it doesn???t work under hpux 10.20?
The computer name xxxx can be resolved on the hpux 11 and hpux 10.20 computer.

Re: mysql network connection problem


In the config file my.cnf, check and comment the line "skip-networking" in the section mysqld.
