Standard TCP/IP over SSH Connection

The connection type allows MySQL Workbench to connection to MySQL Server using TCP/IP over an SSH tunnel.


In addition to a number of parameters that are in common with Standard TCP/IP connections, this connection method features a number of specialized parameters. These are listed here:

  • SSH Hostname: This is the name of the SSH server. An optional port number can also be provided.

  • SSH Username: This is the name of the SSH username to connect with.

  • SSH Password: The SSH password. It is recommended that an SSH key file is also used.

  • SSH Key File: A path to the SSH key file. Note, only key files in OpenSSH format are currently supported.

These are shown in the following screenshot:

The options here are the same as for the Standard TCP/IP connection, details of which can be found in Section, “Standard TCP/IP Connection”.
