http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey all, I've been working and researching this for about a week now and I still haven't had any luck. Basically, I have been trying to open port 3306 to allow connections to my MySql server. i've added the rule into iptables, saved and restarted that i've added the rule into my router. and I have removed "skip-networking" from the my.cnf file and added the blind address in, I'm trying to get this all to work on my LAN, but it doesn't seem to work, I've also restarted the entire server and then port scanned it from outside and inside the networkin (HowTos)
