Unable to connect to remote MySQL server
I am trying to connect to MySQL Server from my local PC using MySQL Workbench (Connection Method: Standard TCP/IP).
Server: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
Changing the IP Address
# Instead of skip-networking the default is now to listen only on # localhost which is more compatible and is not less secure. bind-address = 0.0.0.0 mysqlx-bind-address = 0.0.0.0
netstat -antp | grep 3306 tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:33060 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 690/mysqld tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:3306 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 690/mysqld
ufw status Status: active To Action From -- ------ ---- 3306 ALLOW 0.0.0.0 3306 ALLOW Anywhere 22/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 3306 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 22/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
The Error Message
Failed to Connnect ot MySQL at IP:3306 with user UserName Host'PC IP' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL Serve
