Hi Steinar,
The Standard TCP/IP over SSH connections created in MySQL Workbench let that client software to open a SSH tunnel in real time before establishing the connection, meaning you do not need to create the SSH tunnel yourself.

MySQL for Excel does not support (yet) this feature, meaning you will have to open the SSH tunnel yourself. So this is not a bug, it is a known limitation of the product.

You can follow the guide on this blog post to do so:
https://blogs.oracle.com/mysql/guide-to-create-a-tunneled-ssh-connection-in-mysql-for-excel

We expect to be able to offer this feature in a future version.

Best regards.
