I provide MySQL service via docker, the used image is `mysql/mysql-server:8.0.23`.

Now i want to connect database from the host machine, not in the container.

So i create two users:

mysql> SELECT user, host FROM user;
| user             | host          |
| learner_maskip   | |
| learner_fullip   | |
| healthchecker    | localhost     |
| mysql.infoschema | localhost     |
| mysql.session    | localhost     |
| mysql.sys        | localhost     |
| root             | localhost     |
7 rows in set (0.00 sec)
User `learner_maskip` work well, while `learner_fullip` did not. 

Access database via `learner_fullip` failed:

$ mysql -u learner_fullip -h -p
Enter password: 
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'learner_fullip'@'' (using password: NO)

Access database via `learner_maskip` successful:

$ mysql -u learner_maskip -h -p
Enter password:

I expect that both `learner_maskip` and `learner_fullip` should access database successfully.

How to repeat:
Create user, the `host` is CIDR notaion with full ip address.

mysql> CREATE USER 'learner_fullip'@'';

Try to access database via this new user in the host machine, not in the container.

It will be failed.

Hi Mr. Yao,

Thank you for your bug report.

However, this is not a bug. The privileges that you have granted demand that users come explicitly only from the hosts defined. This is not a case in your installation.

Second, this is a forum for reporting bugs in MySQL database and not a forum for the configuration of the operating systems, various containers and similar.

Not a bug.
