The physical machine is running debian sarge with kernel 2.6.8-2-386.
The virtual machine is running windows 2000 with sp4.
The machines are connected via a private subnet.

This is the only information i have, and i have dumbly removed ipconfig and winipcfg from the windows 2000 ...
THe MySQL server is hosted on the physical machine.
After reading dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/connection-access.html, i ran on the physical machine :
mysql > GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * TO root@'172.16.11.%/255.255.255.0';
and i still can't connect to the mysql server from the virtual machine ... wich is my goal (then i will have fully migrated to linux)
any ideas ?
