ESS requiring authentication from MAC clients, but not from Windows clients
Windows Server 2008 R2
FM Server 13v2
MySQL: v 5.6.14
ODBC Connector: MySQL ODBC ANSI Driver 5.02.06.00
The company I am writing about (~30 users during biz hours) is almost entirely Windows clients. Windows clients have no issues, connection to ESS tables work fine.
Whenever I hook in via a MAC, (which I often use for development), however, I need to authenticate to MySQL (and/or the connector) whenever a MySQL table is referenced in what I'm doing, or if I open the graph.
So, in short:
MAC forces authentication (logging into the SQL connector/database) to happen.
