Re: MySQL Backend

The problem was that China seems to block direct requests to IP
addresses on all ports. So I couldn't give my brother my IP to access
my machine

ie giving my borther the http address failed to jump out of China
even though it worked for me from many places around the UK.

Using a service like dyndns.com also failed as China blocks access to
all these sites as well (we tried alots to no avail).

Luckly I have a server, and I set up a DNS A record pointing
svn.google.com to to get around this problem.
