Bear in mind that by default, Debian's mysql server packages only
listen on localhost so are not available across the network until
you change that.

Once you have changed it and have added a user with privileges to
connect from your workstation(s), you probably want to test that
access from the workstation with the mysql client:

$ mysql -h your.mysql.server.host -u username -p databasename

Until this part works, you haven't got it set up correctly.
