ERROR: Can't connect to MySQL server on '<IP address>' (10061)

My goal is to connect my SSIS package to a MySQL server running on a different machine (windows).
I am new to MySQL and my client's system admin doesn't know much about MySQL either. I've been trying to connect to using ODBC MySQL driver 5.3 but i keep getting this error: ERROR: Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (10061)

Do i need to have a running MySQL too? I installed XAMPP and tried connecting but it's not working either.

"Do i need to have a running MySQL too?"
What are you thinking off?

You are trying to connect to a MySQL server, and than you ask if you need a 'running' MySQL ...

If your system admin does not know how to do it, maybe you should look for another system admin.
