        I needed to connect to MySql database via another client. I first had to add the relevant privileges to the database:

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON <database>.* TO <user>@'%' IDENTIFIED BY '<password>';

Then open up the port in the firewall via /etc/sysconfig/iptables

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 3306 -j ACCEPT
