I don't think I have seen such an option.
Anyway, I did some troubleshooting and even though it didn't get it working it gave me some information, it's just I have no idea where to go from here.
I tried "telnet mycomputername 3306" on cmd and got that my ip address is not allowed to connect to this mysql server. However I have no idea, what's stopping it. Tried disabling firewall completely to rule that out, so it is not an firewall issue.
Secondly tried "sc qc mysql" which among other information shows you my.cnf location. It shows that it's in mysql/bin folder, but actually there is no such file..
