DB connection

You people have the patience of Job! In my forty years of dealing with vendors and suppliers in the graphics arts world you guys (Jason, Ray, et al) really know what the word service means.

OK, searching through the forum it seems I am not the only one struggling with remote/local database connections. Jason, you said I should use "localhost" in the connections file, ibcrf.php , which I did to no avail. I have also tried a number of combinations including setting up a new database. See the attached NetSol-MySQL-DB-PTD-IBCRF.jpg and Connections PTD ICBRF.txt files.

The more-info form on my site, ContactMe3.php , connects remotely using $hostname_WAptd = "mysqlv105" that I got from the NetSol admin. So if I set up IBCRF-InformationRequest2.php using the corresponding NetSol Server Name (WA hostname), "mysqlv111", you would think it should work. Same machine, same hosting company, same as much as I can. Is the disconnect outside Dreamweaver and WebAssist in, say, MySQL, Network Solutions, or phpMyAdmin? Or have I not hit on the right combination in the connections file? Thanks.
