Problem connecting to mysql server with workbench

Hi, I am trying to connect to a mysql server on an ubuntu laptop, via a windows desktop running workbench, over the internet.
I am able to run workbench on the ubuntu laptop without any problems.
When I try to connect using the windows desktop, clicking the test connection, I get the error message failed to connect to mySQL at:x.x.x.x:3306 with user desktop. Unable to connect to localhost.

I have checked the ip address. I can ping the ubuntu laptop from my desktop. I have allowed connections to port 3306 on the laptop with the ubuntu command: 'sudo ufw allow 3306'. I put the ipaddress for the desktop in the limit to hosts matching for the user. I have temporarily switched the desktop firewall off. Still I get the same error message.

Any ideas on how to fix the problem?
