Connecting to mysql database in Netbeans

I don't know how to connect to a mysql database in Netbeans. I tried to download the mysql-admin file to set the 'Path/URL to admin tool' in Admin properties (MySQL Server properties). But I don't know where to download it. When I try to connect without this file I get the following message:

Unable to connect to the MySQL server:

org.netbeans.api.db.explorer.DatabaseException: org.netbeans.api.db.explorer.DatabaseException: com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.CommunicationsException: Communications link failure

The last packet sent successfully to the server was 0 milliseconds ago. The driver has not received any packets from the server..

The server may not be running or your MySQL connection properties may not be set correctly. Do you want to edit your MySQL connection properties?

I hope that someone knows where to get this file and how I can connect to the mysql database.

Thanks in advance,
