Default Using MySQL across a network

Assistance needed, please:

I have two computers, call them Machine A and Machine B. Machine A is my primary computer, set up to run dual-monitor. Machine B is configured as my own private little webserver, running XAMPP. I switch between the two using a KVM switch. When I'm on Machine B, it uses one of the two monitors, and the other continues to show whatever is open on Machine A.

I use HeidiSQL for direct access to my MySQL databases on machine B. At the moment, I can only connect if I open HeidiSQL on B. For obvious reasons, I'd like to be able to open HeidiSQL on A and have it connect to the MySQL databases on B. I've tried to do this several times, and get an error each time, usually "Host '' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server." is Machine A's network address.

I've fiddled with settings in HeidiSQL and with Machine B's firewall, without success. What have I missed/overlooked/set wrong?
