From the tutorial that Tom linked to, the command you want to use is:
mysqldump -q -uxmysqlusername -p -hmysql.example.com xdatabase >./myfile.txt
Actually I did type that in, at least I thought, it wold look like this,
I changed the xmysqlusernamem to my username for my account
I changed the example.com to my domain name.com
I changed the xdatabase to the name of the data base as it appars in my Command N Control
