Does your Hosting Company offer SSH connection? If the answer is yes, you can use Navicat to connect with your remote server via a SSH tunnel.
Many Hosting Companies that provide server hosting will block access to the server from outside the hosting company's network, and only grant access to users connecting from localhost. The major benefit of SSH tunneling is that it allows us to connect to a server from behind a firewall when the server port is blocked. If your remote server supports SSH connection, your Navicat will be able to connect with remote databases through SSH tunnel without making any changes to existing privileges setting.
