Before restore the database on your second machine, please confirm following
1. mysql up and running
2. database already created
3. mysql -u username -ppassword databasename < dump.sql

Check the my.cnf file. In that check what is the entry for socket file it should be /opt/lampp/var/mysql/mysql.sock if not change it to this.
Alternatively copy the file from /opt/lampp/var/mysql/ to /opt/lampp/lampp/mysql/ and try restarting mysql and then importing the database.
