Unable to connect to MySQL running on my home network

P: 2

I am unable to connect some of the services that I host from my laptop at home, such as SMTP and MySQL on port numbers 25 and 3306 respectively.
But I am able to some services such as Telnet, Remote Desk Connection, SSH.
Here are my details
ISP: Time Warner
Connection Type: Cable
Router: Lynksys
Port Farwarding: enabled port farwarding to HTTP, Telnet, HTTPS, Remote Desktop Connection, SSH, MySQL etc to my laptop.
Connection Type on Laptop: wireless card
OS: Windows XP/ I also checked with SuSE linux
Firewall: I opened all ports for all the above mentioned ports
Netstat query results:

I would really appreciate if somebody helps me why I am unable to connect to my mysql and smtp servers, mind you, I am trying to connect from a private network, I don't know if that makes any difference.

Hi, ynyus75.

Seeing as you can connect to some services, and not others. I would think there is a problem with the services them selfs, rather than your network.

If your running on windows, make sure you've unblocked the ports in Windows Firewall and/or any antivirus you have.
Some ports are not blocked by default, such as HTTP (80).
Others most likely are.
