Q.  How can I connect to a remote MySQL database?

A.  This command line does just that:

mysql --host=<HOST> --user=<USER> --password=<PASSWORD> --port=3306
Of course, replace <HOST>, <USER> and <PASSWORD> with the real values. Port 3306 is the default so you don't need to use that option if it is on that port.
