Mysql connection not working with Windows Firewall on

Using Windows 7 Pro, Mysql server 5.7 installed on local pc.

It was working till the pc moved to another private network. When I open Mysql Workbench and click the only connection I have, it doesn’t ask for any password, when it should, it did before. When I disable Windows Firewall all its fine, I tried to add Indbound and Outbound exeptions to 3306 port TCP, in Private and Domain mode to the Windows Firewall, but when I close the windows the rules disappear, the name is codified, and other rules just doesn’t add.

mysqld.exe is the only service of mysqlserver present in inbound and outbound rules.


Modifying the connection in the workbench from ‘localhost’ to ‘serverIP’ (wich is the same host) works. But doesn’t work for other programs which need connection too. Any suggestion?
