ERROR 1130 -Host is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

Based on the URL from you are trying to connect to the database 
'grant all privileges on *.* to 'root' [at] '192.168.0.%' with grant access;'
To grant access to the given user from that client IP address:
# mysql -u root -p mysqldb
mysql> grant all on test.* to 'username' [at] ''
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON basededatos.* TO usuario@ identified by 'contraseña';
 GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON arena.* TO administrador@ identified by 'GesTrack777';
It is recommende to restrict client access to a single IP address with this option of mysqld 
For OpenSUSE x64 use
Its makes setting rights, creating and mantaining users, databases etc.
as easy as a few mouse-klick 
Error 1130 is a networking error. The server cannot resolve the hostname of the client. Or the host is not allowed to connect to the MySQL server.
Possible reasons:
Your hosts file is damaged or invalid. Various vira and spyware attack and alter the host file in various ways. For instance if the hosts file does not contain the line localhost
'localhost' cant' be resolved as pointing to ip On some larger corporate network it is widely used to "roll out" host files to all clients with symbolic names (like 'mysqlserver', 'mailserver' etc.) for important machines on the network and the corresponding ip's. Check with your admin that you got the right file!
If you use the Windows network name as hostname, it may be a network configuration problem. Try using the ip instead.
On Unix/Linux systems the hosts files sometimes reads localhost.localdomain
This causes a problem with MySQL. MySQL docs at say:
A Host value may be a hostname or an IP number, or 'localhost' to indicate the local host.
No mention of 'localhost.localdomain'. This means that MySQL can't resolve that 'automatically'! This can affect SQLyog when tunneling and SJA for Linux. Workarounds for this include:
A workaround that has worked is to give the user access from 'localhost.%'
You can add localhost to ip in host file like
a) make sure your '/etc/hosts' file reads as follows: localhost //localhost *MUST* be first (notice separate entries) localhost.localdomain . . .
b) make sure you reference the local server in the SJA.XML file as: or localhost.localdomain
This is known to work in some situations where the MySQL configuration file contains:
bind-address =
It has sometimes worked to add a 'dummy' ip to my.cnf like:
bind-address =
.. supposed that 10.10.10.x is also the ip of the local machine. Then you use this 'dummy ip' as the host specification when connecting with SQLyog and SJA.
It seems to be something special for some DEBIAN distributions to use this 'bind-address' construction with MySQL. Solution II) and III) both are solutions that users have contributed at our Forums. Both situations involved DEBIAN.
You can try any host name that the host file maps to ip There might be several! Even a SAMBA NetBIOS alias might work!
You can use the local ip (ie. or whatever) of the actual machine or a name server alias for this. But in this case normal TCP-connections must be enabled in MySQL configuration - that is 'skip-networking' must be disabled/commented out and no 'bind-address' may be there. Of course then an additional DNS lookup will have to take place for the connection to be established. This is of no practical importance!
.. is a variation of 3). With a complex server setup (involving more ip's, domains, subdomains and/or virtual hosts) a similar issue can occur.
In this situation HTTP-tunneling will normally work for all users, but often/sometimes direct connection and SSH will not work with the 'root' user - everything depending on the server configuration. Try another and 'ordinary' user account. You may mirror the privileges of 'root' to a 'superadmin' user.
Finally you could test if this connection issue is the same with 'MySQL Administrator'. It uses the same client code (the C-API) and connects exactly as SQLyog and SJA do.
