Step 2 of 6. Connect to MySQL Server

MySQL to PostgreSQL converter can connect MySQL server using either local or remote mode. Local mode is being used to connect MySQL server launched on the same machine where you run MySQL to PostgreSQL tool from. Remote mode allows you to connect to MySQL server launched on another computer.

By default the program uses local connection mode. It is indicated by radio button "Local" selected. To establish remote connection you should select "Remote" radio button. For remote MySQL servers you should also enter host and TCP/IP port to connect through. Host could be either network name or IP address. TCP/IP port value is necessary only if it differs from the default MySQL port number 3306. Otherwise you may leave this field as is.

Finally, you are entering user name and password. You can leave these fields empty for anonymous connection.
