This is strictly a MySQL issue and not a php issue, but to avoid being a 
I'm pretty sure that you can't do what you're hoping to do...

Proxyservers deal with http requests (usually 1.0 and 1.1), mysql uses it's 
own protocol
and has no means to communicate over http...

Get your sysadm to open or map some ports for you so you can use mysql 
native, otherwise
you'd have to do a dump and then import that on the other server, which 
would not be a
2-way sync...
