I have a server setup with Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS and I use Windows 7 on a desktop and ODBC Connector 5.1 within the same network to access a MySQL database for a CAD program. I also have a Windows 7 laptop with a similar setup. I would like to be able to access the MySQL database from the laptop when outside my network, either using wifi or internet through my phone using easytether. Does this sound like it is possible and if so, some very detailed guidance, tutorials.
I was looking at this tutorial, but considering my history, I know something a newbie wont know is missing.
