i'm sorry but i seem to be completely missing your point.

mysql accepts incoming requests on a specific socket (can't remember which
one, but postgresql is 5432) and therefore where you are is not an issue.

i administer databases via a modem connection that sit on servers somewhere
in the states.
i install mysql and php in windows and then develop at home, then i update
the live db throught mysql-front.
