I’m trying to connect MYSQL WorkBench to a db on digitalocean droplet. I follow the link:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-connect-to-a-mysql-server-remotely-with-mysql-workbench

But still getting the following error:

Failed to Connect to MySQL at localhost:3306 through SSH tunnel at root@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx with user root
Cannot open SSH Tunnel: Connection refused

Hello,

It sounds like that the SSH connection is timing out. Are you able to SSH to the server directly as per the instructions here?
