Do you have MySQL Administrator? If you do you should be able to check 
and see what the security settings are on the database that MySQL has 
for the user interch. It sounds to me like the db user interch doesn't 
have a password set or its set to null. Course, I may have this all back 
to front and the problem is on the Interchange side. Let me check my 
variable.txt file and see what I've got and I'll post it back here for
