I tried to send to msql-mysql-modules@stripped but that message
seemed to disappear, so here is almost the same version.

MySQL-3.22.20a (precompiled linux binaries)
DBI-1.06
Msql-mysql-2.017


The mysql test fails with an error about not being able to
connect to the MySQL server.

(The server is running, I can connect to it via mysql client and
by MS Access).

I was able to write a little script that got a connection

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use Mysql;
$dbh = Mysql->connect("IP number here", "database", "name","passwd")
or die "Can't connect $DBI::errstr\n";
print "connection to sample database suceeded\n";
$dbh->disconnect;
exit(0);
__END__


This suggests that the driver is ok.  But why is the test failing?
I also tried with msql-MySQL-2.014 (same problem).

I could not find any mention of this problem in various archives.
(Well, once or twice I found it mentioned, but no solutions ).

Thanks,
  Seth Chaiklin
