We have a client with multiple sites that need access to their SQL instance to run a small application locally. The SQL server resides outside of their current phase 2(s) and we would prefer not to modify these tunnels. They only point to the RDC Gateway, so a single IP.


My question is, can I reroute an ODBC connection so it comes from the local PC, through the gateway server and on to the SQL server without exposing the SQL server?


Sorry if this is SQL based and not networking.

ODBC isn't a protocol and as such can't be routed.


Can you have a direct connection via the internet from the client to the sql server via the internet using odbc?  yes

Recommended?  NO  You want a secure connection as well as a hardened sql server.
