Connecting MySQL Workbench to Server MySQL

Use:

GRANT ALL ON *.* to root@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'your-root-password';

Use % as host if you don’t know where user is connecting from.

Also make sure Mysql is running and that iptables is not blocking the port.

The above solves this error: Host ... is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server
