We’ve just recently installed PReS Connect Server, Workflow, and Designer on our development Windows 2016 VM server.
I’ve been getting mixed information about how the Designer is supposed to work, in terms of getting my colleagues to access the Connect Server via Designer on their local PCs. When I click on “Send to Workflow”, it just tells me that there is no workflow instance. Since the Designer can see the workflow on the localhost as 127.0.0.1, I’m assuming that our PCs will have to connect to the MySQL database to be able to see the instances (please correct me if I am wrong).
In that case, is there a way that I can allow external connections (local network only) to the MySQL database, and enabled SSL on said connections? I did check the box at install time to disallow outside connections to MySQL (our third party did not mention if it was needed for Designer connections, so better secure than sorry, right?).
