Mysqldump problems!

I keep coming up with this line when i try and use mysqldump

mysqldump: unrecognized option `–max_allowed_packet=950K’

i am using

mysql -uusername -ppassword -h mysql.domainnam.net database_name > file_name

am i doing anything wrong or is it just that the i’m trying to dump more than 950k. I tried it with just one table and it still came up with the same error message.
can anyone help me.

thanks
jolane

This should be fixed… looks like the updated MySQL client wasn’t on your machine.
