Unable to connect to MySQL on Linux via Windows 10 MySQL workbench

I have been struggling with trying to connect to MySQL using Workbench on a Windows 10 box. I have been able to install Workbench on the Linux box where MySQL exists and connect to MySQL with no problem. I can at that point create DBs, Schemas, tables, etc.

However, when I try to connect from the Windows box, I receive error messages when I use any of the connection methods. I have changed the host name to as well as which is where MySQL is listening along with port 3306. I have reviewed the user tables in MySQL and confirmed the users I am trying to connect as do exist in the user tables. I have disabled firewalls to remove them from the equation but still no love. Also, I can SSH in via PUTTY from the Windows box.

Any help that can be provided would be appreciated.
