Hi, I've been struggling with this problem for days and getting nowhere. My setup: Debian 8 ISPConfig 3.1.6 The mysql on port 3306 is LISTENING. I'm able to connect to the db correctly from LAN addresses but not remotely. I am able to connect to the server on port 3306 remotely via telnet. My my.cnf bind-address = 0.0.0.0 The username connecting is given % and all granted. All help is welcome!
