Workaround for ‘Authentication failed’ Issue When Connecting through HTTP Tunnel

May 11th, 2012

Some of our users have encountered problems with establishing a connection over the tunnel.php script despite the fact that the tunnel.php script is installed correctly. The following error message occurs:

‘Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘’ (10061): Authentication failed.’

The problem appears to be with cached proxy servers and will be fixed in one of the next builds of our product.

Currently it can be fixed by replacing the dbforgemysql.exe.config file, that can be found in dbForge Studio for MySQL installation folder, with the attached one.
