The mySQL is using its default port (3306), and everything is working ok.
Except with some of my bigger companies, who closed almost everything on
their firewall, including (of course) port 3306 :-(

Try this:
get revOpenDatabase("mysql","host:80","MyDatabase","username","password")

Hi Ton,
Looking at the Documentation, you can define the host port number in the
revOpenDatabase command.
You could hard code the port number in the code or use a variable that is
read from the application settings/preferences.
