Discussion of open issues, suggestions and bugs regarding ADO.NET provider for MySQL
My MYSQL Database resides in a Unix Machine, I tried the evaluation version in a Windows Server, it works fine , But it is not able to connect to Unix Server.
Iam using Compact Framework
Check if you can connect to your database server on UNIX machine using standard command line client (mysql.exe) from windows machine.
If it works send us connection string you've used to connect with mysql.exe.
