I can't access MYSQL on port 3306 from the internet on a linux box behind a router, What's missing?
Posted on 2006-04-21
I have a linux box running on 192.168.2.8 with my sql working on it on port 3306 in my LAN,
I setup the router to forwars incoming calls on port 3306 to 192.168.2.8.
I setup linux box with no FIREWALL to see if that fixed the problem but no luck. iptables -F .
I even tried with sftp using port 22 , port 80 web server and I get connection refused. What could be missing?
If I use the internal Network everything works great but not through the rourter port forwarding, which by the way works well because I have other ports on other server working perfectly.
