That is a connection refused error (111).

On Debian, the config file is at:


I was taken for a surprise that the Debian distribution came with
these lines in my.cnf:

# The skip-networkin option will no longer be set via debconf menu.
# You have to manually change it if you want networking i.e. the server
# listening on port 3306. The default is "disable" - for security reasons.

Anyway, after commenting out 'skip-networking' I could connect from a
remote host.

That may not be the exact same problem you are having but perhaps it
is something similar?
