    Hi , how do we do access our database from outside of the network for Entity data source. I mean when we copy dll path and connection string to

    report designer config file it only allows to access the data base if report designer is on the same network , how can we solve the problem so that from any network we can access our data from any network?

    Hello Sudarshan,

    The EntityDataSource component passes a connection string to the specified EF data model, which allows the Report Designer to execute the data context and get the available fields for design purposes.

    Thus you need to configure the EF based on the desired database, and make the database accessible remotely. Please contact you system administrators to configure the SQL server and test connecting from your machine. Once configured, check what connection string should be used and use it on configuring the EntityDataSource component.

    I hope this information is helpful.
