It's a MySQL permission issue.  MySQL is very picky with user  
permissions.  You have to explicitly specify what host(s) a user is  
allowed to connect from.  Read section 5.5 in the user manual  
This issue caused some headaches for me as well.  Like, Rasjid said,  
I'd use the MySQL Control Center.  It's what helped me figure out this
