Hi Daniel

1) Is mysqld running on machine2? (I know it sounds stupid, but this one catched me too :)

2) Your machine user/password pair has absolutely nothing to do with mysql's user/password
pair! Therefore check, if these are valid entries in the mysql.user table of machine2!

3) If a mysql user 'root' with password 'password' is defined in table mysql.user on
machine2, check if this user is allowed to connect from machine1 (== is 'machine1' listed
as mysql.user.Host?)!

4) Can you connect with '' or IP-address instead of 'machine2' ?

Hope this helps
