If so, you got through to the mysql server. (See the version number?)
You weren't connecting as a proper mysql client, so the last string doesn't
make sense to you, and your answer didn't make sense to the mysql server, so

through to mysql on port 3306 (port is open) or not (port is blocked,
probably by a firewall). It looks like you got through.
