  • Status changed from New to In Progress

We did a remote connection into users computer and verified network connections
When trying to connect using Tools/Options/Network| {enter ip address} An sql error came up stating it could not connect to that Ipaddress
In order to resolve it I had to open windows firewall and add the path to the MySQL server into the databse computers using the firewalls Advanced Settings/Inbound Rules/New Rule.
I browsed to the path C:/Program Files(x86)/Mosco/Moscore_QM/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe
Once we added that to the Inbound rules botheremote client computers could connect to the localhost computer

Jamie, this path needs to be added in a future Moscore-QM update
