comment Forwarding port 3306 on Mac OS X in order to connect to a remote MySQL Database
Keep in mind that there is a known bug/feature related to some mysql libraries and tools refusing to make a TCP connection when you use localhost. When localhost is used to connect unix socket will be used. bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=31577 I am not sure if this applies to Mysql Workbench. Your issue seems to more about getting the connection started though.

comment Can't run an executable under Linux
Are you actually trying to run this from the console or through a terminal like putty? Your TERM that you mentioned in your comment suggests you are using some kind of web gateway. It is possible your web gateway is causing problems, and the application just will not be able to work in that environment.
