Remote access to MySql not possible

  • Posted September 25, 2014

Hello, I would like to get help for this issue. I have tried to install iRedMail and after that it was not possible to access remotely to my MySql server. I have tried with SSH and all is OK. Help me to fix this issue, here are the log messages : 11:04:18 [Note] Server hostname (bind-address): ‘’; port: 3306 140925 11:04:18 [Note] - ‘’ resolves to ‘’; 140925 11:04:18 [Note] Server socket created on IP: ‘’. 140925 Thanks!



If you wish you could use our services for mysql needs.

Otherwise, from the “server itself” when you have established the “ssh” connection. Can you run telnet localhost 3306 ?

Thank you, Francis L.

Hello, thank for your reply. I’ve tried and here is what is said : root@Server:~# telnet localhost 3306 -bash: telnet: command not found


yum install telnet


apt-get install telnet if your are on debian.
