Thanks for your response.
I tried to connect to the server via telnet as you suggested with the
telnet my.machine.ip 3306
Connected to my.machine.ip.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
Is this the behaivior I should expect, or am I correct to assume that the
remote host should not terminate the connection.
Somebody else on this list reported having the exact same problems after an
upgrade from Redhat 7 to Redhat 8 in response to my post.
Any more ideas of what could be wrong?
