Can't connect Python program to remote MySQL database over the same network

Json Formatter

Can someone please help me? I am trying to make a simple python - MySQL connection. the code is running on my Dell-Windows Laptop, while the server is running on my Acer-Linux Laptop, they are connected on the same network. But upon running the query it prompts me with this error : Firewall is disabled for both. I tried pinging both of them vise versa and is working. In fact, I have a program with LibreOffice Base and they are interacting properly. But when I try to translate just a simple query in PYTHON seems like it is not working, I just don't know what could be the error on my code. Thank you so much for you help.
