During the Connection from Netbean 3.6 with:


onto a mySQL DB (4.18) I get the error:

Is there a server running... together with the Message java.lang.NumberFormatException.

The Logfile on the requeted server shows me:

157 Connect    intern@dv02na.rtk.de on 
157 Init DB     Intranet
157 Query       SHOW VARIABLES

The skip-networking-option in the only my.cnf file is disabeld

How to repeat:

Sorry, the mySQL Version is 4.1.8.

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem.  Unfortunately
you are not using a current version of the product your reported a
problem with -- the problem might already be fixed. Please download
a new version from http://www.mysql.com/downloads/

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest versions,
please change the version on this bug report to the version you
tested and change the status back to "Open".  Again, thank you for
your continued support of MySQL.

Please try testing with MySQL-4.1.10, as this has many bugfixes that might be related to this problem. 

This is not a JDBC issue (unless you can not duplicate this with the command line client by issuing 'SHOW VARIABLES' with it, if that's the case please re-open this bug).
