Title

ESS requiring authentication from MAC clients, but not from Windows clients

Your post

     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.
     Windows, does not . . it just works.
