By default SQL Server to MySQL converter uses local connection mode. To use remote connection select "Remote" radio button and specify host and port values. Host can be either network name or IP address. Port value is necessary only if it differs from the default 3306. If you need to specify custom port for local connection, select "Remote" and type "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" into "Host" box.
Finally, user name and password are entered. If the target server allows anonymous connection, these fields can be empty.
NOTE: MySQL 4.1.0 uses the authentication protocol based on a password hashing algorithm that is incompatible with that used by SQL Server to MySQL conversion tool. See this article to learn how to resolve the issue.
