Hi all,

Frederik is right. The hyphen in the port number was inserted when i
copied and pasted the error message. i used the port number 3306 (three
three zero six).

I am sorry about this, but i forgot to mention that my os is Windows
XP. MySQL is installed on my machine itself. Its using port 3306.
'Root' is the only user.

I have tried to connect by omitting the port argument.I have tried by
removing the password also. And I do take care to start an instance of
the server before trying to connect to it.

But I keep getting the same error message.

I hope someone can enlighten me
