mysql server not allowing remote connection

I added the binding to the my.ini file

bind-address =

Also created a user

GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'myuser'@'%';

in windows firewall, made sure that the inbound rule had port 3306 allowed

then I tried connecting over internet. In my workbench,
host: public ip of the remote host
user: myuser@%, password: password of the user

Still, the mysqlbench is not able to connect

Any other hints what am I still missing here?
