watchout you have to use the latest sequel pro version as there is a bug for ssh tunneling in the earlier releases. https://github.com/sequelpro/sequelpro/issues/2141

Yes 100% need to be able to white list IP's - sometimes a remote server needs to connect to the database for many reasons.
Also I can't use Sequel Pro which is really annoying for quick debugging!
YES! I build apps locally that require me to use a remote database, where I'll eventually host the app (Cloudways). This is IMPORTANT and if not implemented will require me to move to another provider.

yes yes yes! we need this!
Yes, I agree. This would allow my to build online apps that I can integrate with onprimise systems or another cloud app.
I realize the security issues so I would be happy if this was restricted to a single or small group of IP addresses with permission to connect.
it would be great if you allow remote mysql connections from server white listed IP, this way we can use the database on the server from our local server, please help us with this
