Can you connect with any other products (phpMyAdmin locally, heidisql, etc) ?
Without knowing anything about RDS by gut feeling would be an IP restriction, but it's hard to tell without the error message.
If your MySQL database is on a remote server it may well be one of the following issues:
localhost access permissions
This was silly but I removed :3306 from the host string and it worked.. I really don't know why, I have it set with the port on production.. I guess locally it's not good to be so verbose?
My hosting provider requires that I log into the control panel and whitelist the IP my machine is on before I can connect to it.
