Select your Connection Method. You can Connect directly or Connect using a SSH tunnel:
Connect directly: Fivetran connects directly to your database instance. This is the simplest and most secure connection method. To connect directly, create a firewall rule to allow access to Fivetran's IPs.
Connect using a SSH tunnel: Fivetran connects to a separate server in your network that provides an SSH tunnel to your database. You must connect through SSH if your database is in an inaccessible subnet on a virtual network. To connect using SSH, create a firewall rule to allow access to your SSH tunnel server's IP address. See our SSH connection documentation.
If you connect using a SSH tunnel, enter the following details:
- SSH Host
- SSH Port
- SSH User
- Public Key
- (Optional) Set the Require TLS through tunnel to ON if you want to use TLS.
Click Save & Test. Fivetran will take it from here and sync your Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations data.
