From my linux system, it shows mysql is up and running from the output of the following command:

[root@localhost ~]# netstat -npl | grep tcp
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:3306                0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN      31579/mysqld        
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:111                 0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN      3294/portmap        
tcp        0      0 127.0.0.1:631               0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN      2884/cupsd

tcp        0      0 :::80                       :::*                        LISTEN      3580/httpd          
tcp        0      0 :::22                       :::*                        LISTEN      3513/sshd          
tcp        0      0 :::443                      :::*                        LISTEN      3580/httpd          
[root@localhost ~]#


I can't seem to connect to  it remotely from a window system using MySQL Workbench application. What else can I try to do to get a connection?

Make sure your MySQl server is listening for incoming connections:

Thanks max-hb, how can i get the mysqld process to listen on the ip address of 192.168.1.137

cp        0      0 0.0.0.0:3306                0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN      31579/mysqld

Your mysqld is already listening on ALL interfaces (0.0.0.0), but on the quite unusual port 31579

to get a listening server for  192.168.1.137 on dthe default port of 3306 use:

[mysqld]
...
port            = 3306
bind-address    = 192.168.1.137
...

and restart your mysql server. You may also want to verify you have no firewall active.
