I'm using xampp. I want to be able to access a remote DB. I have access to the remote server, so I can configure.
I'm testing with
>telnet 192.168.0.157 3306
<♦Host 'PC5' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server
Connection to host lost.
After googling I've found that in there is a file mysql/bin/mysql.ini. And there must be a variable named bind-address. and I have to assign 0.0.0.0 value to that variable.
But I'm afraid, I haven't found any variable there. So I added one with that value.
But its not working...
Is there anything else I have to do are is there exists any other way to do it in XAMPP??
Please reply soon. Thanks in advance.
