PowerBI Datasource for connecting Jumpbox or NAT IP

Hello Team,


Process is: Iam logging in to Customer Jumpbox and open the Server name using Web page and extract report for that server.

Can i use PowerBI to extract Server Report login in to Customer Jump station? Do i need to install PowerBI in Customer Jumpbox? I have Pro PowerBI License, but in Customer Jumpbox we will have only Free License, not Pro or Premium.

If not, Can i connect from my company NAT IP rather than from the customer jump station using PowerBI?


If yes.. pls confirm which data source can be used for both and how we can connect?

Power BI expects line of sight to the data source. It has no mechanism to establish or monitor connections. It will not work with jump hosts or boundary ports or the like.
