Can I connect to MySQL remotely? 
Yes, you can connect to your MySQL database remotely on our Linux servers only using a client such as MySQL Administrator which is part of the MySQL GUI Tools found at http://mysql.org/downloads/

Please remember to enter your own IP address or % for a wildcard in the Remote MySQL area in Cpanel. Additionally, you must create a database as well as a user and then add the user to the database prior to establishing a connection. Your database name and username will be Cpanelusername_databasename and Cpanelusername_databaseuser respectively. The password will be the password for the user you created. The hostname should be your domain name.

The port is 3306
