Hi Andrew,

Latest Connector/NET versions don't support old password authentication anymore because is unsecure. I suggest to use native authentication for a secure environment.

You can find more information here:

If your clients need to 'update' their password from pre-4.1 to 4.1 you can use a previous Connector/NET version (try 6.5.4 or below ) only for that purpuse. After all your clients updated password, you can use latest Connector/NET version fully.
