SQL accessible over the web

How can I make SQL database accessible over the web on a web server? I have SQL loaded on a win2000 server edition server but can't seem to access from other pc's for development.

well, when I said to do it on the client ODBC, I meant to do it on the PC which is trying to access the server with SQL.  Sorry if I was unclear.

A. What's your purpose?
1. read-only
2. read/write
3. dba role

B. Is server on the internet and in front/ behind the firewall?

C. Do you use browser or Enterprise Manager?
   If you use Enterprise Manager, all the setup is very
   easy. Use IP and port ID in Server/Client Network
   Utilities to set up the Server/Client Connections.

D. User/ security setup

When you set up the client ODBC, set the 'Server' setting  to the IP of the server.  Then on the next page, click the [Client Configuration] button and set Network libraries to TCP/IP and set  "Computer name" to the same IP and leave the port number at 1433

You may also need to set the Server to accept connections on that port.  I just tried it using 127.0.0.1 but I don't have a public server available for a real test or to tell you how to configure the security.

A.     read/write and dba role
B.     I do not know the fire question. I am running over a Cayman router with 5 static DSL IP lines. To do this I believe firewall was disabled.
C.     Using Enterprise Manger for development and Browser for web page read/write
D.     Security setup up as far as logins good.

I can run Query Analyzer from PC?s that are next to the win 2000 server with SQL and get in no problem, but fellow programs cannot access from without. Still confused on how to set up Server/Client Network Utilities? where is that?

Do I do what you suggest in the win2000 server that is housing SQL or in the PC trying to access the server with SQL?
