Help needed.
I have to IIS server with differnet domains.
Some web pages from one domain holds in a frame or iframe some of the web pages placed on the second domain.
Since IE browser has a security probelm with that i cannot access the web pages of one domain from the web pages of the second domain.
How can configure both IIS servers or one of them to allow access to another domain.
(changing the user browser security is not possible)

As far as I know it should work without any problem.
I have such a situation and it works without any special configuration...
I have IE with default settings and IIS was installed with default settings as well.

Do you mean ODBC data sources  to Access database?

if that is what you mean, you are searching in wrong direction.
domains are not problem. the problem is that ODBC connection to Access does not work if database is on another server. that is stupid, but it works only if database is located locally.

the only way around it is to create local database with links(via ODBC) to the tables in database on desired server. This way you will cheat the server, because it will think that database is local.

that is not possible!!!
as you said yourself, because of the security.

just include same js file(you can do that via http as well)
<script language="Javascript" src="http://sss.ss.s/common.js"></script>
and call the function!

I say "not possible" only if I am sure...  If you have any other idea, just let me know:)

I guess you did not understand what I suggested. I will try o explain it once more.

suppose you have "page1.htm" on http://sss.ss.s/, so your url is http://sss.ss.s/page1.htm 
if you have your JS functions included in "common.js" in same directory the url for them would be http://sss.ss.s/common.js 
if your second page "page2.htm" is on http://www.ww.w/ url for it would be http://www.ww.w/page2.htm 

in order to call functions from http://sss.ss.s/page1.htm just include http://sss.ss.s/common.js 
you can do it with <script language="Javascript" src="http://sss.ss.s/common.js"></script>
after that you can call any function from common.js

If you want to get a hold of the contents from one web page for use in another then you will need to do it by opening up the page in a server side component of some description. (e.g. The Microsoft XMLHTTP component (part of the Microsoft XML library) allows you to get the contents of web pages.) Once you get the contents of the page you will need to parse it in some way to find the data you are looking for...

It may help the 'experts' on here if you give a brief overview of what you're trying to achieve?
