We hit an error adding your new account

authentication failed: Timeout connecting to 185.192.69.216:3306 (185.192.69.216:3306). Try opening up any firewalls and ensure your device is listening on port 3306.

What is the port should I use?

Hi there! I wanted to follow up on this thread with some tips my friend Justin in support recommended in case it’s helpful to anyone following along: 

 

… it seems like this is an IP restriction issue with MySQL which can be resolved by opening up your firewall and adding the IPs to your user GRANT permissions.
 

This is useful if you use a non-AWS host, for example, Rackspace, HostGator, Linode, DigitalOcean, etc. Zapier will make connections to your database from the following IP addresses:

  • 54.86.9.50

Here's a public doc you can use as a guide on how to configure your IP address and authorize it in the app.

Hope this helps!
