Unable to remotely access my MySQL 5.5 install

I am running a Windows 2008 Enterprise Server and I have installed MySQL 5.5

I have several programs running that are using MySQL and its all working.

The problem comes when I need for php scripts on another server to access the W2008 server, then I just get connection errors. Like:

Warning: mysqli::mysqli() [mysqli.mysqli]: (HY000/2003): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'my_static_ip' (110) in /home/blackmar/public_html/minecraft/Statsogachievements/minestats.php on line 25
Connect Error (2003) Can't connect to MySQL server on 'my_static_ip' (110)

The ports are open in the firewall and by using an online portscanner on port 3306, it says that mysql is open and listening.

I have enabled named pipes.

Keep in mind that I adminstrate MySQL through the workbench, so no experience with other ways of editing the settings and even the workbench I am pretty bad at.

Can anyone advice what I need to do so the scripts can access the database remotely?
