  1. ssh -p 40000 user@
  2. mysql -u dbuser -p -h example.com

But when combining them into command (in order to assign it to an alias), it doesn't work:

ssh -p 40000 user@ "mysql -u dbuser -p -h example.com"

Try adding a "-t" to your ssh command (as in ssh -t -p 40000). That lets SSH interpret TTY commands like "stop echo for typing in the password", etc.
