When working with MySQL connections, the main requirement is that your MySQL database must be available through the Internet.

If connecting to database on the local computer, it is required to allow such connections in your firewall. 

If connecting to a computer in the local network, it is necessary to use port forwarding.

Also, Skyvia will access your server from the IP
