I wasn't aware it was you who I already described all the stuff (too many other questions answered I guess :-) ). Anyway, Edwin posted already a large list of links to descriptions how to create a tunnel for MySQL. It's like adding water to the sea if I start again here.

Regarding the export flag I must ask for your apologies. I looked it up in our current 5.1 build and since we had this in other tools too I was quite sure it is available in WB 5.0 too. Appearently I was wrong. Sorry for that. WB 5.1 will have it definitly, though.

To circumvent the 'mydb' prefix trouble, why don't you name your schema in the model after the real schema? I mean, you have a schema where you forward your changes to, no? Use the same name in your model and the prefixes should no longer be a problem for you. As I wrote earlier, don't forget to assign proper rights to your MySQL user account for this schema.

And might I repeat: if you can get a connection via the mysql cli then you should definitely get one in any other GUI tool too.
