I have a firewall running on the linux server and the mysql port for remote access is blocked. i want to give remote access for the databases to a particular IP address. how can i do that .

The best way is to tunnel through SSH.

Much more secure than poking a hole in any firewall and enabling MySQL to bind to a public IP address.
