Yes, I understand the error message.  What confused me was if I connected
as 'myusername' directly on server2, there was not any problem at all as
what was shown in the following in my original post.  So in another word,
'myusername'@'localhost' was denied access if connecting via port
forwarding, but it's allowed access if connecting from localhost. Hence my
question, if port forwarded connections are really taken as local
connections???
