HeidiSQL works with `mysql-proxy` while MySQL Workbench and DBeaver do not, and why?

For data analytical applications, our current development environment relies on a MySQL-Proxy (version 0.8) to connect to the MySQL data source.

Testing with all the latest versions, we noticed that:

  • the proxy works OK with HeidiSQL, however,
  • it does not work with DBeaver nor MySQL Workbench.

When not working, the symptom is that the client can complete password input, but then hangs forever upon opening the connection.

HeidiSQL works, and it is good. However, we want to have more understanding. So, we wonder why the other two do not work.

We highly appreciate any hints and suggestions.
