I've just spun up a new RackSpace VPS using Ubuntu. I'm normally using CentOS so forgive me for any Ubuntu newbie mistakes.
I set up an SSH tunnel using Putty and tried to connect via SQLYog, something I've done on CentOS countless times.
I'm receiving the error message
Lost connection to MySQL server at 'waiting for initial communication packet', system error: 2
I'm connecting via local
SQLYog 127.0.0.1 8115 root
Tunnel 8115 127.0.0.1:3306
Within my.cnf I have bind-address 127.0.0.1 and skip-networking isn't there. At this point I've exhausted my knowledge.
My iptables are
target prot opt source destination ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp spt:domain ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere udp spt:domain ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp spt:http ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:mysql ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:1337 DROP all -- anywhere anywhere
I just tried removing all entries in IPTABLES and this solved the issue. Could someone let me know what I had wrong?
