I use 4.1.11 server running named pipes only. On the same machine, I am using MySQL Administrator 1.0.20. I can connect via named pipes, but to do so, I MUST use . as the host name. localhost always tries tcp/ip and fails, even though it should try named pipes. Using the advanced settings to force named pipes makes no difference.
Also, even though I am using named pipes, Administrator insists that I supply a tcp port, else the "OK" button is disabled. Any number will work, because its ignored, but the field still can't be empty.
Using the advanced settings to force named pipes does not alleviate the requirement for a port.
Here's the problem:
Once connected, if I select "Server Settings", I am presented with a panel that has all options disabled, and a message in red that states "This section is only available when connected to localhost". Evidently, Administrator doesn't recognize '.' as being equivalent to localhost.
