I've installed the MySQL (version server on my WIndows 7 desktop. The library works fine with the MySQL database on that machine. However, when I try to run XBMC on my MacBook or iOS device using the same advancedsettings.xml file. I get the same :

ERROR: Unable to open database: MyMusic32 [2003](Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (60))

Can anyone give me some advice as to what needs to be done or point me to the right direction?


Did you set up your Windows firewall to allow access from outside the computer?
If that still doesn't work:
Also I'm assuming that while installing MySQL, you selected that you wanted it to have network access.


Yeh, I set both inbound and outbound exceptions. In fact I've had the firewall switched off altogether including adding the exceptions.

Yup, set root access for network.

How can I test if I can actually connect to the MySQL database from another machine?
