MySQL Workbench not connecting to MS SQL Server for Migration

I am trying to use MySQL WB (v8.0.19CE) to migrate a Windows MS SQL Server to MySql running on a Mac. I have downloaded and installed (using brew) mssql-tools and msodbcsql17. I have tested the Server and connectivity with sqlcmd and it works fine. However I cannot get the migration wizard to talk to the MS SQL server. I have used the Mac ODBC manager utility to define the driver although I'm not sure I have that set correctly. I pointed it to /usr/local/cellar/17/17.5.1/lib/libmsodbcsql.17.dylib. I then created a DSN which points to the SQL Server. In the Migration wizard I selected Microsoft SQL Server as the source and point to the DSN and the Driver. When I test the connection, the cursor spins for a few minutes and then asks for a password. I enter the password and it spins for several minutes and then spins the cursor and never stops.

Can anyone help?
