Setting up network on MAMP

Hi,

I've got my Wordpress set up on MAMP for the moment. Completely clean install. (Did it last night.) Regular Wordpress worked just fine,

Updated the wp-config file for MU and set my ports to 80 and 3306 as recommended in the literature.

Now when I try to open Wordpress in my browser using localhost:3306 I get this error:

H
5.5.9
A'@J5f'+?˜ÄAG~ghTJXY7E5mysql_native_password!?Ñ#08S01Got packets out of order

What did I do wrong?
