In fact it doesn't use tcp connections. That script use the local socket 
connections. To test remote tcp connections you have to create a new 
mysql user that can connect from any host and then use "mysql -h <ip>" 
to connect (even on the same system, but using the real ip).
So I'm quite sure it'll not work for you.
