What value (and its format) should I put in the "Host" field when connecting to
MySQL? Do I need to change the port number?
A: For a remote connection to MySQL server you should consider the following:
- First, you should make sure that the remote server you are trying to connect to allows remote connections. Some serves disable remote connections for some security reasons.
- If your server allows remote connections, you should ask for the exact
connection info: Server name, user name, password and the used port number.

or databases as required by the conversion process.
