I have  a access database thats on windwos server
I want to have users enter and update information via the internet
my ISP is using a unix based server so access wont work.


is there a 3rd party tool out there that lets me set up a DSN connection so that i can pull data from my server from my ISP server via IP address?
my ISP wont let do a link from her server to my server.
thanks

Not possible AFAIK.

Try moving your database to Mysql and modify your code accordingly or change your hosting provider.. there are thounds of cheap windows hosting providers available.

BTW.. how did you get asp to work on unix server in the first place?. sunone asp?

I am not quite sure.. maybe there is an export wizard in access that would allow you to do that. you might have to do some recoding though.

Cheers!!
