In my email I state quite clearly that tunnel is working with the root account so it's not
a matter of ports.
The error message shows that is trying to get some configuration from the user account
that is not working. Under root account I have found a file called .my.cnf with a [client]
entry as I said.

file could not be found"
If you are tunneling port 3306 to your local machine, you need to have
mysql listen on the local port.
what ever port is being used on your local computer to operate the tunnel
to port 3306 remotely is the port you will use for mysql locally.
I hope this makes sense!
