Deleted my last post and adding this again. Because I edited my post on stackoverflow I'm unable to get my first connection working in Airbyte. I have standalone sql server and my airbyte container running on the same machine. I've enabled TCP/IP on my sql server. I've tested logging in via sql server management studio using the credentials I'm giving airbyte. And I've also tested logging in and reading/writing using the same credentials via pymssql. I feel like I'm not sure how to isolate the issue further, and it looks like its coming from airbyte. I do see there's an issue in triage here: but I'm not explicitly doing port forwarding if my airbyte container and sql server are on the same virtual machine?
