Endicia (Galaxy Ship) Integration
I was able to get Galaxy Ship to connect to a Magento database using the MySQL ODBC connector. I set it up using a the Shipping SQL View and had it retrieving all the relevant information needed for processing a shipping label.

During my research and getting this to work with Galaxy Ship I found out that the newer versions of the MySQL ODBC Connector seem to have some kind of problem with Galaxy Ship, and you must use an older version of the connector. Version 3.51.12 was the suggestion I read on one forum.
You can download the older version from MySQL’s Archives: http://downloads.mysql.com/archives.php?p=mysql-connector-odbc-3.51&v;=3.51.12
It would be best to have the connection to the MySQL server established across a VPN or some other secure connection.
