Trouble connecting to database via SSH

Hi, I have a connection in mysql workbench that connects to a database via SSH

The ssh url is set to the server url. while the database is a localhost database, i am using the same URL as the connection.

When using workbench 6.x this works just fine, connects and can do whatever i need in there.

On workbench 8.x it produces the following error

Your connection attempt failed for user 'xxxxxx' to the MySQL server at xxxxxxx:3306:
Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 0

If it wasn't for the fact that I can open up workbench 6 and click on the connection and have it work, i would think i was doing something wrong,

question is, is there something i can do to make this work in workbench 8. It seems strange that it would do this. I just dont know where to even start to try and get this working.
