I'm on Mac OS X 10.6.2 trying to connect to ubuntu server 8.04.1 at linode.
ssh -L 127.0.0.1:3306:[[remote ip]]:3306 user@server -N
I want to set up ssh tunneling so that I can access a remote mysql server.
First of all, I'm told
bind: Address already in use. This is only after I've tried the command before. How do I manually close a port forwarding session?
Second, when I change the command to be
ssh -L 127.0.0.1:3310:[[remote ip]]:3306 user@server -N (I changed the local port to listen on). I'm told
channel 1: open failed: connect failed: Connection refused when I try to connect to the MySQL server via MySQL workbench or sequel pro.
To connect through MySQL workbench I use the following settings:
- host: 127.0.0.1 port: 3310 (if 3306 is in use)
- username: mysql username
- password: mysql password
- database: I don't put anything in
