Hello all.
I am having problems with starting the MySql console from CommandPromt in Windows. Since now I have been using MySql noinstall version 5.1.32. I was starting server and mysql monitor from command line.

Today, I have downloaded MySql noinstall version 5.5.13 and started server. But when I am trying to start mysql monitor i get the following error "ERROR 2005 <HY000>: Unknow MySql server host 'localhost' <2>". Can't really figure out the problem.

For starting server I am using "mysqld --console" and for starting mysql monitor, I am using "mysql -u root -p".

Thanks for your time and help.
