error occur when connecting to mysql via ADO & VB (ASP  not tested). if using ConnectionString property then error="fatal error". if using System DSN then error=" can't connect to mysql server on localhost' ". Host name/adres are prompted properly and connection test (in DSN) are passed. sorry for my english :) 

How to repeat:
in VB 

dim dbconn as new adodb.connection
dbconn.ConnectionString = "driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};server=servernameoradres;uid=user;pwd=password;database=database"


create system DSN

and in vb

dim dbconn as new adodb.connection
dbconn.open "nameOfDSN"

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.

Additional info:

Tomasz, you didn't provide mysql settings, grants for this user, and so on. Did you try to "test data source" in ODBC settings?
