This is simple. After you setup a user with proper access rights run the below commands.

# mysql -u yourUser -p -h <yourHostname or IP>

A little explanation:

-u tells mysql what your username

-p tells mysql you have a password and will prompt you to enter it after you press enter

-h tells mysql the hostname or IP address of your MySQL server

Good luck! Contact me if you have any questions.
