Open MySQL server for remote access
Posted on 2014-08-08
I have a server running Windows Web Server 2007. On this I have IIS 7 and am running MySql.
This is running fine over localhost. However, I want to hook up remotely from my machine while developing to the server.
As its working over localhost, I assume i just need to open up port 3307 on the firewall. Now I'm worried about security with this? could anyone please advise the safest way to do this and if poss please provide some instructions so I can ensure that its protected?
Thanks in advance.
