Well, my point was, that it's normally not setup as most users don't have
static ip's and allowing connects from any ip (even allowing net connects at
all) is/can/might be a security hole. That's why most (? well, all that I
know at least) ISPs (? web hosters fits better - what does the ISP have to
do with this?) do not allow net connects.


are we talking about the same thing ?

one of the guys i work for has an account with a service provider that gives
mysql databases as part of his package. he has an account and password that
is supplied when using mysql-front to connect to his database.

i do not have a static ip, i connect through his username and password and
am then routed to his database. the ip i come from is not relevant.

where is the problem ?
