Hi ,

I've got a problem with the followin code :

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
	MyConnection = new MySQLConnection(new MySQLConnectionString("localhost", "qualbil" , "root" ,"qualbil").AsString);
	MySQLCommand MyCommand = new MySQLCommand("select * from versions", MyConnection);
				IDataReader MyDataReader =    MyCommand.ExecuteReader();
				Response.Write(MyDataReader[0].ToString() + "  " +  MyDataReader[1].ToString());
 catch (Exception)

This Page opens a connection to my Mysql Database in localhost but every connections makes a so long time ! 
I try every version of mysql (from 3.23 to 5.01) but can't find a solution. 
I think it's a DNS issue but i tried so many ways  and can't solve the problem !
Maybe it's the DHCP or something like that ...

Can someone help me ?

How to repeat:
I would say a local Network with a DHCP. But i m no sure

Can you describe how long it is taking to connect?  Can you time it?

i would say 10 seconds ... 
But in fact, with the source code of MysqlDriverCS, we used breakpoint and that it's maybe due to a call of a function to "libmysql.dll".
Here is the code MySQLConnection.cs line 325 in unsafe public void Open() : 
"void* retval = CPrototypes.mysql_real_connect(handle,location,userid,password,database,Convert.ToUInt32(port),null,0);"

It seems it's not just the localhost, but the local network.
At least for me here, when connecting to a remote server it's really fast, but to a localhost or another server in the local subnet it takes ages.

In fact, at first, we thought it was a local network problem with the DHCP or something like this but after some comparison test, we found that the problem happens with Norton SystemWorks 2004. Afet uninstalling it, the problem has disappeared ...
It's a weird issue because it works fine with the old workstations for developpement.
In fact we changed our workstation from Athlon XP 3000+ to Pentium 4 3 Ghz and the configuration of the local network personnal IP to DHCP and then the problem appeared...

Don't know why ...
