Default Mysql Remote Access

When you connect to a remote Mysql Database using a PHP script located on another webserver, does the database recieve information about the other webserver's IP, or does it recieve the user's IP.

For example, a PHP script will be accessing 2 databases to retrieve data and display it to a logged in(using sessions) user. 1 database will be local to the script, but the other will not.

Is it possible to permit access to a remote mysql database by only where the script is running from?
