    Yes, our servers are in a private network and firewalled from outside.

    Do you mean that you actually host the mySQL database?  I was actually referring to my own mySQL database on my own webserver.  I require HIPAA compliant medical data acquisition for my business.

    The only way to get your own MySql database updated by actual submittal of the form itself is with a Custom Thankyou page that contains php code to update your database.

    Since, this Thankyou page/php script is going to be hosted outside of JotForm, it itself would need to be on a webserver secured with SSL.

    Hope that helps.
