In the users table in mysql db, you will see the "host" field, not just username and password. It means that mysql user A may be able to connect locally, but user A may fail to connect from other machine. You need to do

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO username@’%’ IDENTIFIED BY ’password’ WITH GRANT OPTION;

If you enable firewall (ipfw or whatever) on server 1, you should also open port 3306 (mysql default) or whatever port you use for mysql. Make it available to trusted hosts only.
