    I'd like to connect to MySQL via MySQL Administrator and MySQL Query Browser.

    I was getting an error that I was not allowed to access it - so I created an SSH tunnel with PuTTy and now my error was that localhost.localdomain could not access it.

    I removed localhost.localdomain from the /etc/hosts file and now I am working fine.

    Is it safe to remove localhost.localdomain from the /etc/hosts file? What does that file do?

    If not - how else should I enable this? I'd like to easily add certain users the ability to access remotely from certain IP addresses, but not all users or all IP's.

    Thanks!

    You should not remove the localhost from /etc/hosts, many software use localhost. What error did you get that made you to remove it?

    Were you ever able to get MySQL Query Browser to work?
