Access to MySQL servers (humbug) outside F9 ?

Just a quick question that's not answered in F9's own docs -Sad

I'm just wondering if I can connect to my mySQL database whilst out on the road, or do I have to be on F9's network (like you have to, to access the CGI/Shell servers).

I just want to do a table update from SQLyog on my laptop.

Thanks,
Stuart.

It is possible to use the hostname "rumpus.plus.net" to connect to the mySQL databases externally, however, it is not supported and is quite bandwidth hungry.

Hmmm...just got the network guys to open up the firewall here at work for rumpus.plus.net and I get :

Error no. 1045 : Access denied for user <blah blah> (Using Password:YES)

So I guess, rumpus.plus.net allows connections from outside F9 but my account isn't known on rumpus (because it's on humbug.force9.net)..

Anyway - just tried humbug.force9.net again and I'm in !!! Smashin' !
The problem was resolved here with a change to the firewall.

Thanks,
Stuart.

p.s. sorry about duplicate post - refresh went nuts when the foum slowed down...always blame a computer !

Odd, I'm sure you mentioned you were on rumpus in the first post... I must have been imagining things!

No Remote Access

I read somewhere that you can only access the FTP servers whilst logged in on an F9 connection - So whilst at work you cant.

Hope this helps.

On a subscription account you should be able to access the FTP servers without being connected to our network, although you won't be able to access the CGI server.
