access to MySQL from Windows 7 via MySQL Workbench

I have a new MySQL database set up and I need to manage it with MySQL Workbench.  Everything works great on the localhost, but as soon as I try to install a new server instance and connect to MySQL from my workstation, I get a failure.  I have tried by both IP as well as hostname.  I am using an administrator level database user on the SQL box.  The database is on an Ubuntu Server machine and is working perfectly with this exception.  I made sure the server is listening on 3306.  It still appears that I have a permissions issue, but I can't seem to find out what it is.  I can access the database management with PHPMyAdmin, but I need to be able to use some of the MySQL tools.

by default remote access is disabld on MySQL. Have you enabled it?
If not, here is a quick guide that I found doing a quick search

I had this problem a couple of times as well :p
I like the MySQL workbench to do backups, even though I use phpmyadmin for everything else
