Received the following exception when attempting to open a new connection to a server instance:

Exception = System.Runtime.InteropServices.SEHException
Message = External component has thrown an exception.
FullText = System.Runtime.InteropServices.SEHException: External component has thrown an exception.

I defined a new connection to my server via SSH. When I activated the connection to access it, an error message popped up saying, MySQL Workbench has encountered a problem.

Once the error appears, the Workbench appears to lock up if I try to establish a connection in SQL Development (same server settings). Otherwise, the development connection allows me to access the schemas in the database.

How to repeat:
1. Define a new server instance. SSH login-based administration was disabled.
2. Select the connection from the list.
3. Click the Server Administration link.
4. In the popup list, select the connection again. Click the OK button.
5. See error popup. The above stack trace is from the "Copy Bug Info to Clipboard" button.

Suggested fix:
I don't have any, other than perhaps more descriptive error messages. This is my first experience using SQL Workbench.

The connection was a Standard TCP/IP over SSH. The same settings are what I used for an SQL Development connection that works.

What exact MySQL server version, x.y.z, are you trying to work with?

I am attempting to connect to MySQL version 5.1.32 running on a Solaris 10 server.

My server is available only through SSH. I could take down the firewall temporarily if you wanted me to test something.

How do you run Solaris commands like "ps" from your Windows machine on the Solaris machine without using ssh?

I can open a Telnet port through my firewall to open a terminal session if necessary. Do you suspect there is something incompatible with SSH?

this is most likely a duplicate of the problem in Bug #51476
