MySQL Workbench on Snow Leopard

Answers: Have 2 answers
I'm having trouble with MySQL workbench on Snow Leopard. I use XAMPP to connect to MySQL, and it works perfectly, and connecting from the terminal command prompt works perfectly as well. When I attempt to connect using MySQL workbench, however, I get the following error:
"Failed to Connect to MySQL at localhost:3306 with user peterv
Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 61"
Can anyone give me a hand with this? I've searched the net, and found nothing relevant. Also, can someone tell me how I can check which port that MySQL is using?

The best answer: I had to find & specify the path for the mysql.sock file.
