problems connecting to mysql using phpmydmin from remote location

P: n/a
Hi,

I just installed PHP 4.3.9, MySQL 4.0.2 and PHPMyAdmin 2.6.0-pl3 on our
intranet server (Win2k3 running IIS). I also have a similar setup on my
local machine (http://localhost/phpmyadmin).

Everything seems normal when I work on the server machine (also known
as web-nt with IP xxx.xxx.xx.xx), but when I try connecting to the
MySQL database on the server from my local machine
(http://web-nt/phpmyadmin), two things happen:

1. If I user 'localhost' in the phpmyadmin config file on the server,
it opens up properly but obviously all the images are looking at
http://localhost/phpmyadmin... etc, which is on my machine.

2. If I use the IP address on the config file, which seems to be the
better method, I get the following error: #1045 - Access denied for
user: 'r***@web-nt.acorn.com' (Using password: YES)

Can someone pls tell me why this is happening?? and how to correct it?
