Connect to mysql database on Ubuntu host from windows guest

I have Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop and have a Windows 7 guest on (VMWare). I would like to connect to the mysql database on Ubuntu host from Windows guest.Kindly tell me how to do the same. I have tried the ODBC test connection but no success.

My current state is as below

I am able to SSH to the host IP address (given against the vmnet1 - output of ifconfig command on Ubuntu) and ping from Windows to Ubuntu host by giving Ubuntu machine name.
I understand that I need to comment the bind-address parameter in my.cnf and I did the same.
Now my question:

Now, I need to execute a statement in mysql server something similar to GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON . TO username@address IDENTIFIED BY password;

I am not sure what should be the value for the address as DHCP enabled on my guest (not sure what IP to give if I need to change this to a fixed IP)

Apart from this I also would like to know what is the approach for setting up a firewall for mysql server (as commented the bind-address) any gui tools for this with out causing any additional problems?
Thanks in advance
