VPN'ing local and remote mysql servers.
Is it possible to have a remote server running php scripts to access a local mysql server behind a firewall with the use of the VPN connection on the clients computer?
Essentially, the only way the remote server can access the local mysql server is if the client has connected to the local network with a VPN connection or is using a computer on the local network. The remote server would need to direct it's connection query through the clients VPN tunnel.
If it's not possible, are there other ways of doing this without opening ports on the local firewall.
