can I force the mysql clients to use a tcp/ip connect if connecting to
This need stems from the following situation:
I have an ssh account and a mysql DB on one host at my isp. The db can only
be accessed from 'localhost', not from any other.
I use an ssh tunnel to forward the local port 3306 to my isp machine:
ssh -L 3306:localhost:3306 user@stripped sleep 10m
ssh binds only to the localhost interface (127.0.0.1). So now I need to
connect to 127.0.0.1, but through TCP/IP instead of using sockets.
Thanks in advance,
