Has anyone out there ever successfully created a DSNless connection script to a remote MS Access database?  If so, please share.  

This is my current connection string:
-----------------------------------------------------
"Provider=MS Remote;Remote Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};Data Source=clients.mdb;Remote Server=http://blah.blah.com;Uid=administrator;Pwd=*******;"
------------------------------------------------------

This is the error I get:
-----------------------------------------------------
Microsoft ADO/RDS error '800a20ff'

Internet Server Error.

/services/default.asp, line 21
-----------------------------------------------------

my ideas:
my host doesn't have MS Remote
my connection script is wrong

OK - I read that article.  Do you have any experience with this?  Does the remote server run on my server (where the databases are) or the host server (where the code and connnection scripts are located)?  It's hard to convince my network admin to install something on the server, so I don't want to ask him to do it if it's not even the answer.

Where the code is running. Many web site hosting don't want to install RDS.

OK - I checked with my host about it on Friday - he is going to get back to me early in the week.  So I don't need to so anything on my end but have an opening to the database?

You are right. For now the problem is on the database side. Have a look at http://www.able-consulting.com/ADO_Conn.htm#MSRemoteAccess for various syntax.
