I cant see your problem....does your guest use its own IP ?
If so, all ports are reachable from "outside" without any problems, same
counts for mysql.
Just make sure that no "" gathering process is running on your
host - mysql is somewhat greedy in this aspect and will bind to all
available IPs if running on the host. Thus will prevent your guest from
occuping the port.

If you share the IP it would be nearly the same, exept that - of course
- no service must run on the IP/Port used by proftp or mysql
