MYSQL ERROR 2049 (HY000): Connection using old (pre-4.1.1) authentication protocol ref used (client option 'secure_auth' enabled)


when I tried to restore all database dump which is in 5.0 version to 5.6 version, it got restored and after that when I tried to reconnect, am getting the following error

ERROR 2049 (HY000): Connection using old (pre-4.1.1) authentication protocol ref used (client option 'secure_auth' enabled)..

I have tried adding the following lines in My.ini and restarted the service,but the issue persist till.

skip-grant-tables

The following link says its a bug in MYSQL.

Do anyone have any fixes for this solution?


Answers:


Use this workaround for MySQLWorkBench 6.0 at the Manage Server Connections Dialog Box:

Add useLegacyAuth=1 in the Advanced options box in the connection settings dialog.
