The best answer: The BI Publisher Desktop tool allows you to access your BI Publisher Enterprise server from your client PC. It does not provide any means to directly connect to your database.
A basic installation of BI Publisher Enterprise shall be accessible via eg. http://appserver.mycompany.com:9704/xmlpserver and you can access it using the seeded credentials being Administrator / Administrator. You should use the same URL and credentials for the Template Builder add-in from MS Word.
