hosting connection to asphostportal mysql database

I’m trying to connect via asp to a asphostportal mysql database on their server. I’ve created the database and added a users table. I have an opensource intranet (UAPortal) that is really plug&play, it comes with an Access database attached, so you just load it on your server and go. But I want to use it with the faster, more capable mysql server that comes with asphostportal hosting. I have the connection strings given by asphostportal, but when I try to incorporate that info into the common.asp file, I get this:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error ‘80004005’
[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘localhost’ (10061)
/Common.asp, line 34

Please tell me what I’m doing wrong. I’m self-taught, so type slowly!
All advice is appreciated!

Is problem somehow related to the DHTMLX components?

According to the description it some error in DB access configuration.
