I have a MS Access database located somewhere in the
Internet. Let assume the IP is 192.168.10.111

How do I make VB's ADO connect to that database ?
What is the connection string for this ?

this won't help because it is connects to SQL server (which is different from Access for Remote Access).

> located somewhere in the Internet

Regarding the accepted answer, you are mixing internet with LAN (or, are mixing anything).
