the port is open. They are firewalled but I manage to connect to an 
HTTPd daemon running at 3014 why shouldn't I be able to connect to 
MySQL daemon at the same port? Do firewalls are good enought to 
distinguish between http traffic and mysql traffic? I thought in the 
end it was all packet data and no one could make any sense out of it... 

Before trying MySQL Daemon, I tried launching a webserver set to the 
default MySQL port just to see if they could connect, and yes, they 
could. Then I just keept working and now they can't connect to the 
Daemon... I think that or the firewall policies changed in the meantime 
or that the connection is timing out for their connection hellish slow. 
Can the MySQL connection with Rev fail due to timeout?
