Cannot connect using Workbench, can using ODBC

I having an existing remote connection to a MySQL database using ODBC so that a legacy application can connect & query. The connection works fine only using the ODBC 3.51 driver configured 32bit. It doesn't work 64bit and won't work with the v5.3 ODBC driver.

When trying to connect using the Workbench v6.3 I get the message 'Malformed packet' when clicking Test Connection with a 'Standard (TCP/IP)' setup to match the ODBC setup.

How can I configure the Workbench connection to work with this connection, either the ODBC or (even better) the 'Standard (TCP/IP)' setup?
