making first connection

I have a windows xp at the office, and an identical computer at home.

The office machine has mysql server. A second office computer has successfully accessed that server on peer 2 peer. I want my home computer to be able to log into the office computer, so my excel vba app can access the mysql in the office.

I have a trial version of securecrt on the office server machine, and one on my home machine. at home, i used westell to configure a static pass through address. I use logmein.com to test the office computer from home.

I have no success in getting securecrt to talk to either machine in any way. Is there some kind of more explicit guidance. I know that mysql server uses localhost, 127.0.0.1, and port 3306.

Where could I find ANY sort of tutorial example to get securecrt to work and talk to ANYTHING on either machine.

Thanks!
