MySQL should normally always have TCP/IP support; You can verify this
by doing 'mysqladmin variables' and check the 'port' variable.
The MySQL manual gives you a lot of tips how you can check that TCP/IP
Normally you should be able to do:
mysqladmin -h remote-host-name version
to check that a remote MySQL server works with TCP/IP.
