Connecting to non-local database problem

I am trying to connect to a MySql server on my intranet via a TCP/IP address, with a username and password. The server is running on a Linux Debian ARM system connected to my local router with a particular local TCP/IP address. When I try to do so using MySQL Workbench the connection fails.

Alternatively when I use a program running in my browser called phpMyAdmin specifying the same local intranet TCP/IP address I am able to connect when I specify the address in the browser as http://nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn/phpmyadmin ( where nnn etc. is my local IP address ). I am not sure of the port but I assume it is the default one of 3306. Also within the Linux Debian ARM system if I connect using the local TCP/IP address and the correct username and password the connection succeeds.

How can I get MySQL workbench to connect to this non-local MySQL server ?
