I believe that's what was set up on the database server, I'd like to connect
a client machine
securely via ssl to the database server.

mysql -u testuser -h database.server -p password
will connect the test user, but I'd rather it be a secure encrypted

I know ssl is enabled on the database server but I don't know how to connect
an ssl connection.

Thank you :-)
