Remote Host Access

Network access to a MySQL server under Debian is disabled by default for security reasons. You can enable it by commenting out the skip-networking option in /etc/mysql/my.cnf.

If you don't allow such access then your local MySQL client will report:

  ERROR 2003: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'festival' (111)
