Database timeout 5000- can not connect


I’m trying to learn this tool, but having trouble.

I have it running on Ubuntu and it will connect to a local database and run queries, so that’s good!

However, when I configure it to connect to a remote MySQL DB it will only “timeout 5000”.

I have done the following:
-Confirmed the credentials
-confirmed MySQL is running

  • tested with mysql workbench
  • “grant all” on the remote dB to the meta connection
    -become irritated

The message changed from “cannot connect” to “timeout 5000” after all confirmed.

Could someone please offer an idea on what to try next? I am currently manually dumping the remote dB and importing it, but it is 10g and takes some time.
