Remote connections to MySQL

Are remote connections allowed to MySQL? I’m trying to connect to mydatabase.mydomain.com using mysqlcc (and mysql command for t-shooting purposes), and get:

ERROR 1130: #HY000Host ‘x.x.x.x’ is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

mysqlcc is a gtk based mysql utility that I am comfortable with, and would like to use with my dreamhost account.

In the Control Panel, modify the database user to allow connections from an IP address or hostname mask (ie, .example.com or 67.101.)

:cool: Perl / MySQL / HTML CSS
