How to repeat:
It worked fine with lower version workbrench, I downloaded v8.0.29 dmg file, drag and replace the old one in Application folder, opened it again, try connecting a remote server which definitely not localhost, but it failed and said:

Your connection attempt failed for user 'whatever' to the MySQL server at whatever.mysql.rds.whatever.com:3306:
Unable to connect to localhost

why localhost here???

Hello Terry,

Thank you for the bug report.
I've tried to reproduce your issue on a Mac with workbench 8.0.29 but not seeing any issues at my end.
Discussed internally with the WB developers and confirmed that it is not seen.
If you can provide more information, feel free to add it to this bug and change the status back to 'Open'.

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.

Regards,
Ashwini Patil
