Using Heidi as MySql Client to connect to remote server

I had to make some db modifications for one of my clients to the mysql database on the remote server. I hardly have any experience working on the php/mysql arena. Call it my lack of knowledge or understanding, but I had a hard time connecting to the remote server. I tried mysql workbench, but that would crash right when I went ahead to access the database. I was frustrated since I had to make one small change and it was sucking up my time. Then someone over the internet suggested HeidiSql.

Apart from being able to "connect successfully", HeidiSql is really fast and provides and great clean UI to manage your data. Point to be noted for future refs!!
