Hi there!  I am a bit of a newbie connecting to databases over the internet, so I hope someone can give me with some clear guidence on how to move ahead:

I want to be able to query a remote mySQL database from my C# Application.  The mySQL database is located on server that has SSL enabled.I  have managed to make a connection using mysql connector .net 5, but of course this is completly insecure.

My application could conceivably be running on a large number of machines (i.e. 50>), so my solution will have to take into account multiple users from changing locations.

Is connecting to a remote mySQL database from c# with ssl possible  and secure enough? Is it enough to send requests via https, or is this only for browser based apps?
