Remote access to MySql not possible

Posted September 25, 2014 4.2k views

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
11:04:18 [Note] - '’ resolves to '’;
11:04:18 [Note] Server socket created on IP: '’.

  • Hmm,

    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,

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.

then try again.
