as stated in the header this is the error that I get when i try to connect to the MySQL server locally.
I have a tunnel in PUTTY built, the destination port is 8600, the password and user rights are correct, as I am able to get to the schell and work there.
I also reinstalled the latest driver mysql-connector-odbc-5.2.5-win32.msi (I have Tableau 8), and get this error anyways.
I am able to use tableau if i go directly to the server (not locally) with another user name and password.
Any ideas what is wrong?
There's a known problem with the way MySQL changed their ODBC driver in their v5.2 release. I recommend that you uninstall that driver and install the v5.1 ODBC driver for MySQL.
I hope this helps,
