I have a mysql server running on a local Windwos machine, but I cannot connect:

$dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:mysqlPP:database=$database","$user", "$password")
results in:
Couldn't connect to /tmp/mysql.sock: at C:/Perl/site/lib/DBD/ line 109


$dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:mysqlPP:database=$database;host=localhost","$user", "$password")

Couldn't connect to localhost:3306/tcp: IO::Socket::INET: connect: timeout at C:/Perl/site/lib/DBD/ line 109

mysql gives for status
Connection: named pipe: mysql
UNIX socket: mysql

What's the problem?
