Every new machine blocks connection
Posted by: Vitor Vitor

It's hard do describe my problem, but we use Visual Basic 6 app, with 3.51.12 MySQL Connector/ODBC and 5.6.20 MySQL Server, all on Windows OS.

As you can see, this is a legacy system, and also this use root user for access.
Root has all the permissions, everything seems to be OK, just this weird issue.

Everytime a new machine opens our systems, and only for the first time of new machines, MySQL blocks all the new connections (from all machines, including server itself).

To solve, I have to go to the server, set the skip-grant-tables ON, reset the mysql service, connect to the database (without password), flush privileges, reset the password for root, flush privileges again, set skip-grant-tables OFF, reset the mysql service again, and now everything works great, including the new machine!

But after another new machine comes, the same goes again and again.

I have no idea what causes this. I was suspecting of being the password, but I can't change it. The password has 12 chars length and has the symbols of "!" and "#" on it. Dunno if this is the cause, but it's weird that everything is normal, but as soon as a new machine connects, it starts the problem.

Can someone help me find the problem?
