    I'm wanting to temporarily open ports to enable MP Client to work remotely via the internet. I have my router forwarding TCP ports 31456, 554, and 3306 and firewall set to public for TV Server and MySQL. Also tried disabling the firewall. MP Config says it can connect on port 31456 but can't access the database on 3306.

    I think I'm seeing reports on the internet that MySQL needs to be set to allow remote access, is that correct? I tried some suggestions found on the internet, to connect to MySQL using mysql -u root -p then executing...
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON . TO 'root'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'MediaPortal' WITH GRANT OPTION;
    I get: Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
    FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
    Restart the MySQL service.

    But still no go. What could be the issue? Many thanks.

    Update - I realised the previous setup had a fixed IP address. I went into the IPv4 settings and put a fixed IP there and restarted, and it worked! Jeeez! :confused: I have spent 7 hours on this last night and this morning!

    You need to open many-many ports for this http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_MEDIAPORTAL_1/11_Preparing_Your_System/Firewall_Settings And maybe editing gentle.config file will be needed.
