I've got an Ubuntu LAMP install running in a VMWare virtual machine. I'm able to connect to the mysql server from inside the VM from the command line, but I'm not able to connect to it from inside the Host OS via the VM's ip address. The error message returned by the mysql server through SQLYog is ...
Error No. 1130
Host 'monolith.home' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server
... where 'monolith.home' is the computer name and domain of the Host computer.
So the mysql port appears open, it is just rejecting my connection. Where do I change the kind of access restriction?
