    Not really, because that will change.  You may want to use something like DynDNS to set up a dns name with a dynamic IP updater.  You can set your computer to a static IP and then do the routing that way.

    Here's the service I'm talking about:

    Use it to create a hostname like  You will install a small service that grabs your WAN IP and updates the A record in DNS.  Then you will need to set up a port forward from your router or modem for MYSQL (TCP 3306) to your destkop  

    If your modem doesn't support port forwarding you may need to acquire a cheap linksys or netgear router.
