ODBC Connection to Mysql using SSL

Posted on 2011-03-14
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I have a database housed on a mysql server installed in a Microsoft 2003 Server.

I have some remote users that need to connect to the db through port 3306 using an odbc connection.

I see in the latest mysql odbc install that you can select an ssl option to encrypt the data passing between the server and clients.

Can someone please tell me how to configure the server and mysql to accept an ssl odbc?
