I have an Access 2002 database on the net that I would like to open from my laptop.

The database is in a 'private' folder one level above the main website (therefore not accessible using 'www.' format).

Is there any way of opening this database from the laptop without putting the database in my main website folder (where it will be less protected)?

I've tried using ftp but it might be I'm using the wrong file name format.

I'll be very grateful if anyone can offer som help.
