From the Amazon EC2 server I am getting this error:

ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'bluehost dedicated IP here' (110)
  • The Bluehost mysql server remote database access allows the Elastic IP assigned by amazon.
  • The Amazon Security group applied to the instance allows all outbound connections
  • I can successfully ssh using the bluehost ip
  • I can ping the bluehost ip and get a response
  • I can connect to the bluehost mysql database from my local machine using the bluehost ip

What more can I do to try and diagnose this problem?
