That's incorrect. The error message doesn't indicate that you connected
but the MySQL server rejected your connection. The message indicates
that you couldn't even get a connection to the port.
The problem lies in your XP machine. Try telnetting to port 80 (HTTP
port) of various machines and see if you can get a connection. If
not, that'll tell you that you cannot get any outbound connection.
