Re: MySql on LAN Server

You're now running MySQL server on one workstation, and running Crystal Reports also on that workstation. Apart from CR, what client software do you use to interact with MySQL, WorkBench, or what?

You want to be able to access that MySQL instance yourself from outside the lan, also run Crystal Reports against the server from outside the lan? Perhaps you also want others to have such access?

MySQL server will need some settings changes to make it available to the outside world while keeping it secure. Does your organisation have domain names? Is the lan yours, or is run by a company you work for? If the latter, it's a job for their IT staff. If you need to do it yourself, you'll need to harden the server (eg https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-harden-mysql-security-with-a-single-command/), define remote users and their privileges, set up SSL (eg https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-connect-to-a-mysql-server-remotely-with-mysql-workbench), etc. Big job.
