mysql.com has links to 2 - mysqlcc and mysqlgui I think they are.  Both
work under Windows *ok* but aren't 'release' products yet (still
in development from what I can see).

You're probably not being able to connect because MySQL isn't allowing
connections from the outside (or are you doing this client
on the same machine as the MySQL server?)  You need to tell mysql
to let users accounts connect in from the outside. (add a new user
in the mysql user table and put % for the host, IIRC)
