Encrypting Connections to SQL Server

Description

 

To ensure that the communication between Remote Desktop Manager for Mac and the SQL Server database is encrypted, an extensive procedure must be followed on the SQL Server instance.

 

Please consult this Microsoft technet article that provides detailed instruction: Encrypting Connection so SQL Server (technet).

 

After it has been properly configured, the only modification to perform in Remote Desktop Manager is to set a property in the Advanced Settings of the data source.
