Connecting to an online MySQL server


#1

How do I connect to this server http://genome.ucsc.edu/goldenPath/help/mysql.html
The webpage above gives this command: mysql --user=genome --host=genome-mysql.soe.ucsc.edu -A

Which only gives me this error: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘–user=genome --host=genome-mysql.soe.ucsc.edu -A’ at line 1

Pls help.
