Thank You so much. I will have to try this later today. I have never done
a port forward in iptables before. I knew that I could, but just never had
a need or tried so it slipped my mind about this.
Again, Thank You.
On linux, one could do a port forward:
EXTIF=eth0 # Or whatever the interface that faces internet is called.
iptables -A FORWARD -i $EXTIF -p tcp -s <client-ip> --dport 3306 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A PREROUTING -t nat -p tcp -s <client-ip> \
-d <linux-fw-ip> --dport 3306 -j DNAT --to <internal-ip>:3306
