How to connect remotely to Linux/MySQL using MySQL Query Browser

P: 93

I'm trying to connect from my Windows based PC to a dedicated server which is running on Linux system.

I type server host and port 3306 user name admin + password and default schema and I get access denied message.

I use putty to connect to the server using IP and port 22 and it connects to the server.

What settings do I need to use to connect to MySQL using query browser?

Many thanks in advance.

Did you GRANT priviliges to your mysql user to connect remotely?

I'm using admin with password which seems to have access to everything.
