MySQL Connection through a SmoothWall Firewall
Posted on 2004-09-30
I have opened a port on our SmoothWall firewall to connect to a MySQL box from outside of the firewall.
When the expected IP address comes in the firewall forwards it to the MySQL box.
I keep getting a unable to connect error. I am using PHP and here is my code
$hostname = "firewall IP address";
$username = "username";
$database_CAB = "database";
$password_CAB = "password";
$CON = mysql_pconnect($hostname, $username, $password) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
If I need to post this in another section like PHP or Firewall, please let me know.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
