Default Host is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'?

I am installing ISPConfig on an Ubuntu6.06 distribution. It is desktop version, I used http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_6.06_p3 for installation instructions. In trying to connect mysql to the server I have set up I get the error :

'Host 'server2.randrinc.com' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'.

Can someone offer some insight into this issue? I am a junior techie who has hit a brick wall. Im not sure what is causing this problem for me... not sure if I dont have msyql server setup correctly... or my Ubuntu set up right. Any information on this would be most helpful!

Thanks in advance. Below is the actual shell printout.

root@server2:~# mysqladmin -h server2.randrinc.com -u root password XXX
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'server2.randrinc.com' failed
error: 'Host 'server2.randrinc.com' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'
