Open Socket With Messages

Aye, but that wasn’t my goal. I wanted to wait until a specific callback event was triggered. The trouble is, open socket to mySQL, when it fails, seems to fail silently. No callback, no error message. 

To work around this I created my own timing loop which keeps trying every second for ten seconds, checking the openSockets property and bailing on the loop after success or timeout. 

Now my problem is, it seems every other time I try to open a socket to a perfectly good mySQL installation, the socket connection fails. I am not sure why. I am wondering if this is an issue with mySQL security or not.

Secondly, I just set up my own wait loop that exits when the socket is in the openSockets or else times out after 10 seconds. This will work for me.
