When trying to connect to MariaDB or MySQL you receive error 2003 Cannot connect to MySQL on x.x.x.x on port 3306 (10060)

Please ensure you have added the remote IP to the allow list in your hosting control panel MariaDB - MySQL area. Contact us with a support ticket with the remote IP and we can allow it at the firewall for MariaDB - MySQL usage as well.

If you are behind a personal or work router, make sure you have UDP and TCP endpoint filtering set to "Endpoint Independent".
