That's all been checked. I did a port scan. On 80 443 3306

All show open accept for that one.

As stated I can connect from local host and another PC that is within the network. Just not anything outside.

wan access is for sure routing port issue.

Check again & again your router config to route port 3306 to mysql machine.

OK. Well doing a bit more research, I would have assumed that the mysql server would be listening for anything else other than itself. Its set to only listen to 127.0.0.1. Change that to a * and problem was solved.
