TencentDB for MySQL can be connected to in the following two methods:
Private network connection: a CVM instance can be used to connect to the private network address of a TencentDB instance. This method relies on the high-speed private network of Tencent Cloud and features low delay.
Public network connection: if you cannot access the private network, you can connect to your TencentDB for MySQL instance at its public network address. The public network address needs to be manually enabled. It can be viewed on the instance details page in the TencentDB for MySQL Console and can be disabled if no longer needed.
The following describes how to log in to a TencentDB for MySQL instance from Windows and Linux CVM instance over the private and public networks.
