      opening port 3306

      Hi,

      I have a SAGEM router (doesnt say what model it is) - it came with SKY.
      I have opened port 3306 on my windows vista firewall and under services
      on 192.168.0.1 - i have opened 3306. I think i also need to add a firewall rule. For inbound by default its says 'block always'.

      I need to access mySQL server - it says when i connect: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) when using TOAD

      Do I have to create a firewall rule - is it inbound or outbound and what address is the LAN server .. by default its 192.168.0.1

      I do have a static ip address. which is 192.168.0.100 however when i goto the following port checker - get the error Port 3306 is closed on 90.221.100.236.

      PLEASE HELP !!!

      Re: opening port 3306

      The IP port showing blocked is your EXTERNAL IP, the 192 IP is internal. I would create a firewall inbound and outbound for that port for all internal IPs and see if the problem stops.
