HeidiSQL - SQL Error (2003) in statement #0: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'xx.xxx.xxx.xx' (10061)

Frustrating error. One thing you may want to try is to open a command prompt and try the plink command manually

    • plink.exe -ssh user@host.com -L 3307:host.com:3306
It seems that when your host changes, or some other issue that requires a confirmation in plink to accept the key and the finger print, HeidiSQL cannot yet report on that issue and returns that generic error from the title. It's worthwhile to test this as 80% of the cases where HeidiSQL would not connect was due to this.
