Mysql password

Post by peat » Wed 18 Mar 2009 19:44

When using the dbespress Mysql direct driver for connecting to mysql database on a remote server, is the Mysql password encrypted when it is sent over the network?

Thanks

MyDAC does not send password to the MySQL server, but its hash function is computed and its result is passed.
