Can’t Connect Workbench to Amazon RDS

well shit…

This one took me about 45 minutes. Kept getting hanging errors while trying to connect mysql workbench to amazon’s RDS services. So here’s what I did. Not sure what fixed it.

I followed the tutorial here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/USER_WorkingWithSecurityGroups.html

And then added a rule (which is probably really dangerous): CIDR/IP: 0.0.0.0/0 to allo connections from all sources.

Woohoo! it works.
