Watch out here I come again ;)

Just a minor addition here: You might consider the strings
"boca__.u.washington.edu" (that's two underscores) so that the host matches
just boca01, boca02, etc. rather than bocaraton.u.washington.edu. Now
granted, the chances of some boca%.u hacker situation is slim but you never
know. Caveat: hosts like bocaxy.u, bocabu.u, etc. will work. The
underscore means "a single character," not a single digit. So there you go.

This is indeed most likely an issue with the permission tables in mysql.
boca## or veron## are the actual web servers (I think) that are making the
query to the msyql database running on ovid or vergil. I usually make a
couple of user accounts like admin and user and set their hostnames to be
veron%.u.washington.edu (or boca%) and grant them privileges accordingly.
Good luck! Thanks.
