IIRC, many MySQL setups don't enable networked connections from other
machines. The relevant portion of 'my.conf' is the 'skip-networking'
directive. You have to remove/comment it for the daemon to accept
network connections. It's been a while since I setup the Windows ODBC
driver for MySQL, but I seem to recall that it used the network to
connect to the server. You'll also need to configure the network port
(default is 3306).
