I have taken away the router so that my Solaris box will go directly to the switch and to INTERNET.
How can i open a port for cetain services, like mysql-tcp with port 3306.
I have add 2 lines into /etc/services
mysql   3306/tcp
mysql   3306/udp

save and exit
reboot the system
However, mysql client from another host still cannot connect to my solaris box via mysql-tcp

How can I make sure that port 3306 to be truly open in my solaris

Thanks alot
