Turn off connection pooling for client applications connecting to SQL Server 2k

We are running an ASP.net application on .net 1.1 running on IIS 6 on Windows Server 2003.

We are connecting back to a SQL Server 2000 box.

We want to turn off all connection pooling between the webserver and the SQL server.  We would prefer to do this with one central setting.  We do not want to specify it in the connection string as we have very many web.config files throughout the server that we would have to update.

Can it be done centrally on the webserver or on the DB server?

I hesitate to absolutely say something can't be done ... but I really don't think it can.  Sorry!

Do you realize you will lose performance if you remove the connection pooling?  Establishing a connection with a database is time consuming.  Connection pooling was added to alleviate that problem.

I'm pretty sure that this option exists only on the client side. You can't set a "default connection string" with some options on server.
