Port Forwarding in Windows 

I was trying to forward port 7706 to port 3306 locally to make mysql respond on two ports.
In linux this would be done with iptables, and as it turns out its almost easier to do in Windows.

This requires ipv6 to be installed to work, but that has been true of windows since Vista.

To create a port forward:
netsh interface portproxy add v4tov4 listenport=7706 connectport=3306 connectaddress=

Replacing with a valid IP address on your machine.  I could not get to work with this for some reason, it had to be a real ip.

To view the forwards you have set up:
netsh interface portproxy show all

To remove:
netsh interface portproxy delete v4tov4 listenport=7706
netsh interface portproxy reset
