I read the answers about 3306 from a question posted in 2009. I have the same problem, but the answers I read didn't help. Port 3306 is open, even if I stop the windows-firewall, MySQL still can't access it. MySQL is running. I've run
netstat firewall xxxxxx and get these results:
3306 TCP Enable MySQL Server
and this from
netstat -a -n:
TCP [::]:3306 [::]:0 LISTENING 0
(I don't understand the [::])
I do have AVG Internet Security running but not the Firewall component. How can I find out what is blocking MySQL from accessing this port? And it's not just this specific port, but any port. I've asked on the MySQL forum, but no one is replying.
