How do i forward ports? So my Mysql server can be accessed

February 8, 2012 at 10:33:29
Specs: Windows 7
I got a Mysql server running, which is installed just fine.

But whenever i try to access it from somewhere else i cannot access it.
Gives me a error saying connection to server has being reset.
Now i guess this will probably be because i do not have port 3306 opened by my ISP.

They told me i have to do this myself through their control panel which allows me to access the modem settings.
Which looks like this http://i39.tinypic.com/53lerk.jpg

But i am not 100% sure if i am doing this correct

I set IP to 192.168.1.100 and ports both on 3306

Is this what i am supposed to do?
Or is there more to it?

You have to change the status to active and save the configuration. this assumes you assigned a static ip of 192.168.0.100 to your pc housing my sql.

lists some tests you can run

Ok thanks.

So what i did was correct then(just had to put them on active of course).

I do not need to setup anything else in windows, like IP forwarding in TCP/IP adapters?

where would you forward to? itself? nothing else should be required. Use Shields Up! or portforward.com to test if the port is open
