Default mysql password problem

Till asks if the MySQL password contains special characters - are the characters listed by Till not allowed? And I did use some of them and now what do I do about it?

I have tried all the fixes I can find and am still unable to get the system to accept:
#> mysqladmin -u root password blahblah
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
"error: access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' failed"

SOMEHOW, USING EVERYTHING I COULD FIND ON THE WEB, I WAS ABLE TO RESET THE PASSWORD TO '' AND THEN RESET IT TO A REAL PASSWORD, SO NOW THAT IS FIXED,

BUT IT STILL WILL NOT RECOGNIZE MY HOSTNAME
.

root#> mysqladmin -h GX270.tech-transfer.com -u root password Mand1eMM
ERROR - GX270.tech-transfer.com is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

and
root#> telnet gx270.tech-transfer.com 3306
connects then Phost says 'GX270.tech-transfer.com' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server. Closed by foreign host

and
root:#>hostname
GX270.tech-transfer.com
and
root:#>hostname -f
GX270.tech-transfer.com
