MYSQL for excel cant connect the remote mysql database

Hi Master
I used the mysql installer install the latest mysql for excel last two days.
I have two mysql databases. When i used the mysql for excel to connect the local database with TCP/IP protocal, the connection was done and successful. But when i was using the same mysql tool of excel to connect the remote mysql database. It was showed connection failure.

For the good one : i filled the info: localhost,port:3306,usrname:root,password:1234.

For the bad one: i fill the info: Hostname:, port:3306,usrname:crc,password:123456. The failure message after connection:Failed to connect to MYSQL server instance at with user crc and the given password.

Before i though it would be caused by my tcp/ip nework. But i could access the remote mysql server by command: mysql -h172.20.0.110 -ucrc -p123456. So it seems my network is ok. Meanwhile , i have a software PHPMaker. It could load the remote mysql database succesfully after filling the info as above.
So i really dont know why the mysql for excel cant connect my remote mysql database. Call for help.
