Could someone please help me.  I would like to use the Website Administration Tool to connected to my SQL Server Database.  My database resides on a separate server and is not on my localhost machine.  How can I get the WSAT to work with this remote DB?

IP address if the remote SQL server is configured to allow it (I think that is off by default).  If this is within your own network, you could use UNC paths like \\servername\sqlservername
