You will have to connect using a connection string. Go to to learn more about the string. You will need the user/password with the proper permission level.

You will also need to know the IP address of the server. Find out if you have a dynamic or static IP. If the IP is dynamic then you will need the services of IP managers like

In your server's router you will need to forward a port to point toward your machine's local IP. Make sure that the DHCP server does not change the local IP. You need to do this: forward port (UDP/TCP) to 3306 with the server's local IP

Once you have the connection established then you can go ahead and connect to your database.
