Hi Warwick,

you don't need ODBC to connect from MySQL Workbench to a MySQL server. Workbench uses the C++ connector instead, which is shipped with the application on all platforms. The connection problem you see might have to do with other firewall settings. In my video ( I tried to address these kind of problems. Maybe that can guide you to a solution.
