Connect to MySQL over the internet

I am really new to MySQL setup although I have used the database for years running queries and such.

I have two computers. One is the main server and I used SHIELDS UP! to check the ports and 3306 is responding as OPEN. The other is at another office and I simply want to use SQL.EXE to reach accross the internet to the main server.

The error I get is...
ERROR 2003: Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (10051)

I am sure it is a matter of the server simply ignoring my queries because the port is open and when I connect on another computer within the same network as the main server everything works fine. It is only when I try to access from the internet side that I can't connect. The port is open but no one answers my calls.

I am sure there is something I need to set in the INI file but I have no idea what or even where to start looking.

I really need help as quickly as possible so what ever you can offer would be appreciated.
