Connection with ip instead of Url

I kind of knew that. That's why I'm asking if my connection settings are wrong. I have to work with the database before I redirect the dns to the hosting. I just can't seem to get a connection going with the database via my ip connections (number as compared to name). I was sure I did this quite some time ago. I'm not sure if I replaced the "localhost" with the actual ip address or how I had set it up. I would know exactly what to do if I could work with an actual domain name.

All I know is, I have quite some information to setup before I can redirect the dns. So I would like to do it before hand, and my client doesn't have any ftp access into his website, so it's not like I can even upload a copy of his old site for now.
