probably maintains an access list which you can configure. This access
list tells an application which machines, domains or subdomains, IP
addresses or IP address ranges, can or can't connect to the server.
This is for security. A proper application should install such
that by default you have a deny all access list, possibly with the only
exception for 127.0.0.1 aka localhost.
Maybe entering localhost as server name (if your MySQL server is on the
same machine) might work, depending on how the MySQL deamon is
resolving the incoming address), but the proper solution is to
explicitedly configure MySQL to allow connections from your machine.
