Maybe your MySQL is configured to work only through a Unix domain 
socket, not opening a TCP port. They used to do that for a while 
(skip-networking option). Or maybe it is using a non-standard TCP port. Do

netstat -an|grep 3306

and check if you get a line similar to this:

tcp        0      0* 

If not then that's the reason for the problem you're seeing and you have 
to work on your my.cnf.
