accessing mysql instance withing Windows Docker Container

I followed the steps here  to install mySQL and PHP, however, I need the ability to access the MySQL instance via port 3306 via MySQL WorkBench..  To do this I would imagine I need to allow remote access via the mysql command ...  But.. when I type 'mysql -u root -p' via the folder that mysql is running in (connected to session via Enter-PSSession <type-here-containerID> -RunAsAdministrator it just hangs and nothing happens.  Any ideas?

Windows... such a boondoggle...

Do a search for some port of Wireshark/Tshark + install it, to debug where your connection is breaking down.

Use whatever tool you normally use to ensure MySQL is actually listening on port 3306 too.

Mysql.exe doesn't give an error.. It just hangs there.. I'll check to see if any processes are running on port 3306
