Description:
Using MySQL connector/net in visual studio 2005, I got errors when trying to connect to my database. After importing the source into the project, I traced it to the driver function that opens the connection. It tries to do a DNS lookup of the address, using an #if statement to use a different function in .NET 2.0 (?). This function works for hostnames and most IP address, but throws an exception with a 192.168.x.x address. I removed this so it used the .NET 1.0 function and the rest of the code worked.

This is likely related to bug #26152 so I'm calling it a duplicate.
