mysqlcc probably uses Unix Pipes rather than TCP/IP. When used from a 
different machine to connect to your MySQL, it shouldn't work anymore. 
Since you probably used the MySQL package supplied by SUSE, there is the 
possibility that TCP/IP was disabled per default. Check the 
configuration of mysql, should be somewhere in /etc, or the init.d 
script. Also, the rpm tool of SUSE should be able to show you a list of 
installed files for the MySQL package, and where they were installed.
On my Mandrake 10, I had the same issue with PostgreSQL, though the 
error message was a bit more helpful: it actually told me to check 
whether TCP/IP connections were enabled.
You might also want to check out the Connector/J doc:


I'm no MySQL expert myself. I guess I was lucky so far for MySQL simply 
worked (Windows and Linux).
