Issue with connecting Airbyte to MySQL in Docker on Mac


When trying to create a source connection to MySQL in Docker on the same network as Airbyte, the connection test fails with a ‘Communications link failure’ error. The error message indicates a problem with packet communication between Airbyte and MySQL.


I am running airbyte locally on docker desktop (mac) and to test it out I also am running mysql in docker on same network (airbyte_internal). When I attempt to create the source connection to mysql I am using the service name (mysql) but the connection test fails with the following message:
Configuration check failed
State code: 08S01; Message: Communications link failure The last packet sent successfully to the server was 0 milliseconds ago. The driver has not received any packets from the server.

Any ideas/suggestions?
