Hi,

I'm a newbie in this, i've tried to understand the documentations and also the forum@sourceforge. But I'm having a hard time trying to backup my sql database residing on another office.

Can I get your advice on how to connect to the database over public ip?

what do i really need to do?

i have the public ip, mysql usrname/pwd.

thank you.

regards,
Eric

    maybe you forgot to enter the mysql port? e.g. localhost:3306

    or there is a firewall problem
