MySQL Cannot start SSH tunnel manager??

When i try to open a connection to start querying i get this message:

Cannot Connect to Database Server

Cannot start SSH tunnel manager

1 Check that mysql is running on server
2 Check that mysql is running on port 3306 (note: 3306 is the default, but this can be changed)
3 Check the root has rights to connect to from your address (mysql rights define what clients can connect to the server and from which machines)
4 Make sure you are both providing a password if needed and using the correct password for connecting from the host address you're connecting from

i hope somebody can help me.

How are you opening a connection? From MySQL console, MySQL WorkBench, another MySQL client? Are you connecting on the same host to localhost or from a remote client to this server? Did you check the options you pointed out?

Kind regards,
