    I just provisioned a MySQL database service in the Oracle cloud and I can't seem to connect to the instance via a mysql client installed on my windows PC. What do I have to do when connected to the compute note in mysql in order to connect remotely from my PC?

    From PC:

    mysql -u root -h PUBLIC_IP_OF_NODE -p

    I tried -P 3306 as well but that is the default port so I figured that wouldn't matter.

    When I connect to the compute node via ssh, I see mysql running via ps -ef and I can "sudo su - oracle" and connect locally via mysql. I just can't do it remotely.

    I have enabled all networking rules on the compute node networking security settings in the cloud interface.

    The default security policy is to disable remote access to MySQL on port 3306. From the service console:

    - Click on the menu on the right hand side of your service name

    - Select the option "Access Rules"

    - There should be a rule called "ora_p2admin_mysql" which is marked as disabled.

    - Click on the menu to the right hand side and select "Enable"

    This opens up 3306 to the world. As a safer alternative, you should also consider an alternative rule that would open up 3306 to a specific ip-range. For example, covering your local network only.

    Hope this helps. You can also open a support ticket if you still have troubles.
