    your 3rd party software running on remote host or localhost( the server where you have the DB hosted)

    if the 3rd party software is running on a remote host

    login in to your cpanel, under Mysql menu

    add you the IP address of your remote host in ACCESS HOST option

    and in the 3rd party connection string use the IP address of the server where you host your DB in MySQL Host Address field

    else

    it is localhost

    Go on, have a guess
    ...and you need to check that inbound connections on port 3306 are open incase there's a firewall on the server blocking them.
