Hi Chris,

Are you sure that the server is running? Use a capital L, it might  
help (it does for ftp). If the server is indeed on port 3306, you  
don't need to specify the port because it is the default. What is the  
exact syntax you are using? I didn't have any problems connecting to  
a MySQL server, it worked rightaway.
