Connect to Acquia free cloud db via Sequel Pro, never get through

I am trying to connect to Acquia free cloud dev db via Sequel Pro, but I can't manage to get this working. I keep receiving the following errors

My SSH connection gives the error: SSH port forwarding failed and MySQL said: Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 0

p.s. I can connect to the dev db via terminal through the ssh without any problem by using the screenshot's credential

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my sequel pro configuration?

Thanks

Your MySql Host should just be:

free-2056

Not the entire path to the server.

I attached what my connection looks like.

Please see the screenshot for a proper connection setup to Acquia Cloud including free tier.

Make sure your ssh keys are set correctly.

One catch here is that you will need to use "localhost" as the MySql Host. Sequel Pro tries to be smart and make you use 127.0.0.1 instead of "localhost", which then unfortunately will not work with Acquia Cloud. The workaround here is to add a space after "localhost" (again, see screenshot).
