Share objects between computers

Does anyone know how to share an object between computers.

The easyest way for me to explain:  Take a variable X and assign it a value of 10.

I want all computers on the network to be able to get the value 10.  The actual object I am trying to transfer between computers is an ODBC D3 database connection.

Thanks in advance,

Make Dlls and place them intside MTS sitting in the NT Server in the form of a package. All other computers can access those DLLs by creating an instance of any object they want to access...
use a file dsn and place it on a network directory.
or use dcom...

Once the first computer creates the Connection to the D3 database, that's it.  I don't want any other computers creating a new connection, I would like the connection the first computer created to be shared.
As far as i know, you can enable connection pooling. However, even in case of connection pooling, you would not be able to use the first connection if it is already been in use by one client. In that case a new connection would be started. However, if the first connection created has been released by the creating client, it will be avilable to be pooled for any next user requiring it...
