Hello everyone,

I have created a database on MariaDB on a Linux machine (server) with the IP address I can connect to the database and see the tables from the command line without any issues. Now, when I try to connect with HeidiSQL from my computer (client) with all the correct settings - IP address, username, password - I get an error. I've attached all the screenshots.

I've already checked on the server, and the MariaDB service is active. Note that in the error message returned by HeidiSQL, it seems to be trying to connect to the machine locally (localhost) rather than to the Linux server where the database actually exists, even though I have entered the correct IP address in the address field.

Can you help me with this issue?
