Open network access for mysql on ubuntu server

Error message came out when I try to access new vps server :

$ mysql -ubox-p -h box.rasyid.net

Enter password:
ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘box.rasyid.net’ (61)

Edit my.cf file :

# nano /etc/mysql/my.cnf

find this line :

bind-address           =

add # in the front into

#bind-address           =

save and restart mysql.

Re try again :

$ mysql -ubox -p -h box.rasyid.net

Enter password:
