Using mySql Administrator, I am able to connect to the mysql server. But for some reason, using the VS IDE tools, I can't connect. It seems like the answer has to do with the following:

Can't connect 'user'@'myipaddress'

Shouldn't the above be like this 'user@myipaddress' ???

It may happen that you have specified connection string incorrectly. Probably, Host field. Host field should contain host name or IP address.
