MySQL 8.0 Windows 10 Connection to local MySQL fails from Workbench

I'm trying to get my newly installed Workbench to connect to my newly installed MySQL server.

Windows 10, version 8.0.

An attempt to connect hangs for a while, and then fails with:

Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 0 (code 2013)"

(from the Workbench log).

I can connect to the server from the same PC using the MySQL Shell, as follows:

MySQL JS > \connect root@localhost:3306
Creating a session to 'root@localhost:3306'
Enter password: ***********
Fetching schema names for autocompletion... Press ^C to stop.
Your MySQL connection id is 16
Server version: 8.0.11 MySQL Community Server - GPL
No default schema selected; type \use <schema> to set one.

MySQL localhost:3306 ssl JS >

It also works with mysqladmin:

[] ➤ ./mysqladmin.exe -u root -p"Doug&hetty1" version
mysqladmin: [Warning] Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.

The Workbench connection is being attempted from the same PC as the MySQL server is installed on, and the same PC as the MySQL Shell and mysqladmin are run from.

The Workbench connection uses root, localhost, 3306, and a TCP/IP connection

What is the problem?
