On a GDAL build like 1.3.1, would I need to use a vrt file, or can I just
use the connect string syntax as detailed on

I am trying a string like:

C:\Program Files\FWTools1.0.0b2>MYSQL:aqiTest,user=xxx,password=xxx,host=,port=3306,tables=testdata
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.


C:\Program  Files\FWTools1.0.0b2>MYSQL:user=xxx,password=xxx,host=
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
