When trying to connect to a MySQL database in Azure I get the following error:

ERROR 2026: SSL connection error: socket layer receive error

At first I thought it was a firewall/security issue but it appears not. The certificates are correct - and I have also tried with SSL disabled on both ends.


This article hints at the issue, though it is slightly different. After updating the SQL Connector from version 6.x to 8.0.11 and workbench itself to 6.3.10 it has worked perfectly.
