What are you trying to do when connecting to MySQL? Running a web  
site? Trying to admin MySQL?

If all the programs are on the same machine, try using "localhost" for  
the MySQL host name. Either your firewall is blocking the MySQL port  
when trying to connect to an IP address, or your default MySQL  
permissions are not set up to allow from IP address (even if it's the  
same as the machine it's installed on) and just allows connections  
from "localhost".
