Hello, I did a mysql connection once and I do not remember the details, but I remember I got an odbc connector from the mysql site, once you have you can configure and odbc datasource. As i said before, I do not quite remember the configuration on the odbc, but I am almost sure that you can type the ip address of the remote server. Hmmm... I almost forgot, one thing I noticed is that you can't use the wizard to explore the tables and fields from the mysql db, for some reason they just do not appear, so you have to do all the sql selects by hand.
Hope this helps.
1. Install the mySQL ODBC driver to create a new mySQL ODBC connection
2. Define the settings for the ODBC connection. Note: you can use a FQDN or an IP address or a web address for the Server
3. Access the ODBC connection in the Script dialog in Qlikview as per any other live data source
4. Load, Store and access tables as per any other data source!
