With MariaDB it needs to be set as
bind-address = ::
in /etc/mysql/mariadb.conf.d/50-server.cnf or whatever file has it

there are some options -
1. Set a pin on your v31 backend, then on the shield select that backend 
and enter the correct PIN.
2. Select setup on the shield and enter the correct database ip address, 
database, user id and password. You can check against config.xml on your 
server to make sure you have the correct values.

If it still does not connect you can run adb logcat > some file and look 
through the file for the relevant database connection error message.
