We are using FDM (Fast Data Maker) in an environment with firewall. The repository SQL Server is configured to use a non-standard communication port. When trying to connect Fast Data Masker to Repository SQL Server database, a time out occurs. How do you reconfigure the connection for Fast Data Maker to connect using a non-default port?
You can update the port in the appropriate "connection" file pertaining to your type of database. You can make the edit from the FDM UI, or directly from the file located in C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\Grid-Tools\FastDataMaker directory. There will be multiple "connection" files provided. Select the correct one for the database you are using.
