If I try to connect to MySQL to the virtual machine with IP address intentionally inserting an incorrect password the answer is: ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ' root ' @ ' ' (using password: YES) Where is the IP of the host machine. Why try to connect to another IP even if the parameter -h was pointing to the virtual machine?

The user is specified as "root" connecting from "". The MySQL user identities are always name@clienthost, where clienthost is the name or IP number from where you connect to the server.
