In order to backup MySQL Server via SqlBak you have to set a connection via TCP/IP. In other words, SqlBak communicates with a database through port 3306.
However, it may not be possible to connect to a database port directly for security reasons. Sharing a database port for external connections is a bad practice, and by default, MySQL Server disallows such connections.
If the server on which your database is located supports SSH connections, then you can configure port forwarding of the MySQL Server to your local port via SSH. SqlBak will communicate with its local port 3306, and the SSH tunnel will forward this data to port 3306 on which the MySQL Server is located.
