Can i connect to MySQl databases through Telnet?

Why am i not able to connect to my MySQL databases through telnet?

Meant, i got connected but in few seconds, the connection got closed by a foreign host.

Is it just security stuff implemented by MySQL creators. Is there a way i can modify them in order to telnet them?

Is there a way i can view my databases under Telnet? I'm trying to do it in my Localhost (, using port 3306 but i just can't.

Please help me. !

I don't think you can just telnet into your mysql server like that. If you have shell access, just telnet to your server on port 23, login and then connect to your database.

As this is very insecure and everything your doing is passed in clear text over your network, you should really think about using ssh.

And I'm really confused why you doing this on your localhost? If your already logged in, why not just connect to your server using the mysql command?

Well, trickykid.. the main purpose for doing this is learning one . It's just testing and making things. So i thought for a while i could get it. Is there a command to to this? I tried connecting to the MySQL server on my webpage too, it got connected but disconnected too, too fast. I think there must be a way to do under telnet. So i'll keep trying and looking for it. But if you find the way, please write me..

Thanks anyway....
