    Question MySQL Error When Saving Records

    I'm working on a program to allow users to enter contact details through a VB application and have these details saved in a MySQL database. However, when I try to save a record an error dialog pops up saying "Host fe80::1048... is not allowed to connect to this mysql server". Does anyone have any insight into this problem?

    Is MySQL configured to only allow connections from specific remote machines?

    Sounds like the user you're using to login with isn't part of the proper domain. MySQL logins can be set up to work based on domain. Example: you can have admin@localhost ... which means that login will only work from the localhost machine (it can't be used to login from a different machine.) AND it is different from admin (which would be a global access admin.)
