    Following the advice on this forum, I've been able to connect to a MAMP installation from XP using Bonjour 1.05. From any browser in XP I can see the sites on MAMP via 'macbook.local.' Very nice, indeed.

    However, I'm having no such luck connecting to the mySQL instance MAMP runs. From the myODBC driver I tried macbook.local with a port of 3306. Same thing when using the local Parallels NAT IP

    The error I receive is simply [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (10060).

    Both firewalls are completely turned off.

    This person seems to have it working:,128743,129716#msg-129716

    but their recommendation isn't appropriate in my case because I'm not getting a security issue. I can't see the server at all.

    Does anyone have any ideas?
