I have a mysql running with bind-address "10.4.0.211".
From the documentation, I understand it like, the server accepts connections only from the IP - 10.4.0.211.
But I could able to connect to this mysql from another new server with the below configurations.
eth0 inet addr:10.8.0.7 eth1 inet addr:10.11.0.50 lo inet addr:127.0.0.1
None of the above has the bind address in them, but how come I am able to connect to the service. Please clarify.
I am suing the below connections string from the new server.
mysql -u<<username>> -p<<password>> -h<<hostname of the mysql running server>> -A
