Thank you very much.

Your comparison gave me the clue I had overlooked. Permissions on
/var/lib/mysql dir.
Once I opened it up, all is working.


Another posibility:
I had the same problem -as far as you describe-. Try to connect to database
with "mysql -hHOST_IP" and with "mysql -hlocalhost".
if -hHOST_IP works and -hlocalhost doesn't it surely is the same.
