MySQL Client for Remote Connections?

Am running a MySQL 5 database on a Red Hat Linux server hosted on an Amazon EC2 cloud.

Right now, I doing all my development (ruby/rails, mysql, etc.) locally on an OS X Leopard based machine...

What I am seeking is a MySQL client / tool which allows remotely connecting to the Linux server through SSH and pem keys.

What is the best OS X based tool / client to use to remotely connect to an external MySQL database server on Linux?

the standard mysql client supports remote hosts ( mysql -h my.sql.host.com ) and ssh. See the help for details.

Go to the http://mysql.org site for the OS installer.
