osCommerce Migration

I am trying to import osCommerce customers into a new Magento store. I have the osCommerce Migration tool installed but I can’t get it to connect to the osCommerce database.

The database is on the default port and I have had the host of the osCommerce site allow external access to MySQL from the Magento store IP.

After I click ‘check requirements’ all I get is the error :

SQLSTATE[HY000] [2003] Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘xxxxxx.co.uk’ (4)

Does anyone have any ideas?

Mysqldump it and import it into a local database. Removes a lot of possibilities for problems.

So simple! Can’t believe I hadn’t thought of that.

Thanks for the help.
