Do you mean Can't get hostname for your address?


(Please don't strip error messages, the the information provided is always relevant.)

That's a server error so you are actually communicating with the MySQL server. You normally need to configure your router for incomming connections.

I'm not familiar with the error but it suggests that the server is configued to obtain the DNS name of clients but your router's public IP address does not have a valid matching hostname, e.g.:

C:\>nslookup xx.xx.xx.xx

... does not return a name. If you control the MySQL server, you can change its settings as explained at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5118151/mysql-error-cant-get-hostname-from-your-ip-address-whats-the-problem
