Oddly, you don't mention anything about your network.

It might just have been my time spent shouting WTH are these exceptions from when using Rubies Net::* classes under Win32 with a restrictive firewall; but I would be inclined to believe either your system is refusing the connection or mysqld is spiting on you.

Out of curiosity, what happens when you try to connect via a mysql client?
$ mysql -u youruser -h yourdbhost -p yourdb
Does the user/db combo you have set in your program have the necessary access rights? As my Grandfather would probably say... If the lamp won't turn on, check if it's unplugged before you throw out the lightbulb.
