I'm trying to access my remote mysql server from my own computer.
bind-address = 22.214.171.124
I added 126.96.36.199 as a server in privilege
root 188.8.131.52 yes ALL PRIVILEGES yes
I'm using Sequel Pro on MacosX to connect via SSH
here is the debug log:
debug1: Authentication succeeded (password). debug1: Local connections to LOCALHOST:58517 forwarded to remote address 127.0.0.1:3306 debug1: Local forwarding listening on ::1 port 58517. debug1: channel 0: new [port listener] debug1: Local forwarding listening on 127.0.0.1 port 58517. debug1: channel 1: new [port listener] debug1: Entering interactive session. debug1: Connection to port 58517 forwarding to 127.0.0.1 port 3306 requested. debug1: channel 2: new [direct-tcpip] channel 2: open failed: connect failed: Connection refused debug1: channel 2: free: direct-tcpip: listening port 58517 for 127.0.0.1 port 3306, connect from 127.0.0.1 port 58519, nchannels 3
