A friend experience a really strange error I can't reproduce.
She is trying to connect to a custom domain which point to a local (via WSL) IP address in Windows hosts file. On a PowerShell window, if she ping the domain used in Heidi to connect to MariaDB Server, the returned IP is the good one. But when she'is trying to connect via Heidi on this domain, this is not the good IP that is shown on the error.
We've tried to reboot, reinstall, flush DNS cache on Windows but nothing works.
On my computer, it's working like a charm since so many years, I can't reproduce the problem...
Any idea on what we can do to prevent this error ?
Domain resolution showing wrong IP on Windows 11
as you can see below, the IP in the error dialog doesn't match the IP returned by the ping command on powershell window :
Of course, the MariaDB server is configured to allow this user to connect, as you can see here on the right side :
Let me know if you need more information.
Of course it is showing me the client IP, I don't know why I was thinking about something else...
This is not a bug of your app, just one of my brain !
Thank you for your answer, and more important, thank you very much for this really nice app. Most of Windows users don't know how much this app is the best option to manage databases.
