This connection method enables MySQL Workbench to connect to MySQL Server using TCP/IP over an SSH connection.
In addition to a number of parameters that are in common with Standard TCP/IP connections, this connection method features a number of specialized parameters. These are listed here:
SSH Hostname: This is the name of the SSH server. An optional port number can also be provided.
SSH Username: This is the name of the SSH user name to connect with.
SSH Password: The SSH password. It is recommended that an SSH key file is also used.
SSH Key File: A path to the SSH key file. Note: Only key files in OpenSSH format are currently supported.
These options can be seen in the following screenshot.
The options here are the same as for the Standard TCP/IP connection. See Section 8.1.2, “Standard TCP/IP Connection”.
