I get the error in the picture in the attachment, such as authorization error, but where do I need to authorize

Hi Fatih,

To connect to your remote SQL Server please use SQL Server authentication method, currently, there is no way to connect under the Windows Authentication, but we are working to add this option.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
