Is port 3306 opened for remote access to MySQL? I don't want to use phpMyAdmin because page refreshes and a web interface is not in my taste.
Instead, I like to use desktop application because phpMyAdmin has yet to create a Rich Web 2.0 / Ajax / Adobe Flex web application. Until then, I'll stick with desktop applications such as MySQL Query Browser or DBManager Professional.
If port 3306 is closed, is there an open port that members connect to their MySQL database from desktop applications?
