I'm curious why something won't work. I have several servers that have to communicate with each other, so their mysql bind address and their identity in /etc/hosts is their IP. I can ssh to them via putty or plink and then login to mysql as my localhost-only username and password, but when I try to set up a Heidi SQL connection via plink/SSH tunnel I get a 1045 access denied. The standard TCP connection using a user allowed from % works fine. I'd prefer to go through an SSH tunnel.

Is there something about having mysql listen at it's IP address that precludes a SSH tunnel also working at
