Are you meaning that MySQL is running on your machine, but firewalled

Yes, but I'm connecting locally thru the loopback. MYSQL is running on my 
local PC. It's firewalled for eth0. This means that nobody can connect to it 
from remote machines. That's s'posed to be good, right? I don't wanna 
connect remotely. Only locally.

Ya, but then how do I activate the channel scan button? I can't navigate to 
it using the keyboard. If I press the cursor key, it just cycles thru 
selecting all the other options except the shaded 'channel scan' and 
'advanced' button
