Did you try using MS remote provider..
http://www.able-consulting.com/MDAC/ADO/Connection/MSRemote.htm

Other wise, you would need to have a share created on your server and sufficient permissions have to be given to the IUSR Account on the Share....

I guess thats because you are not able to connect to the server.. does the db have a uid and password?..

I personally havent used MS remote.. so i couldnt really tell... Did you try the other option of mapping the folder to your server?

Cheers!!

There is no username and password, I have removed that part and sorted out the previous problem. Now I get the following:

Microsoft ADO/RDS error '800a20ff'

Internet Server Error.

/webnews.asp, line 31

is this a server setting?
