I have a windows 7 machine serving me PHP / mySQL etc i have set is all up well and is all working on local machine as well as on local network machines.

My issue is that when i try to connect workbench / sequel Pro to this machine's database i get an error. I worked out it has something to do with the firewall as turing the firewall off i can connect via the local network machines and their workbench / sequel Pro programmes.

I am using or currently using McAfee Firewall and within the port settings there is no preset for port 3360. SO i tried to set one up and still nothing.

Am i missing anything or would i need to do some more work for it to connect.

Machine running the PHP is Windows 7 using McAfee Firewall. local network machines are a mixture of Windows and Macs.

Shall i drop McAfee and use the standard Windows 7 firewall if that would be easier?
