Can't access MySQL from 3rd party program

    It seems the only way I can access MySQL is through Plesk's PHPMyAdmin tool. I have purchased MySQL Explorer (from mysqltools.com) and while I've been able to connect to some other web servers I have purchased space on, I cannot access the Plesk web server that I administrate. Instead when I try to connect I get:

    [MySql Server DMO Error][ErrNo:1045][Description: Access denied for user: 'cpdataba_iej38d@x.x.x.x' (Using password: YES)]

    I am using the IP address for the web site, the proper database name and username and password. Port is set to default (3306). Anyone know why this is happening? Very frustrating!

    Have you already made sure the 'mysql' database, 'user' table has an entry for "cpdataba_iej38d@x.x.x.x" and has HOST set for the IP address? And the proper permissions set?

    Basically the same thing to do if you were using phpMyAdmin as well.
