    I have followed the how to on DE replication, i am running FC5. i have followed the How To to the letter but when i try to load data from the master into the slave i get

    ERROR 1218 (08S01): Error connecting to master: Access denied for user 'slave_user'@'' (using password: YES)

    the IP above is the slave Server and the master is .241

    I have disabled all firewalls to see if that was the problem. i have even deleted the user and recreated it dozens of times. any help is appreciated. I even through in my Root user and it still gave the same error.
