    Unanswered: Across network?

    Hey guys i'm a n00b here so take it easy..lol I'm taking on a project that will invole some php to be running on a webserver that will need access to a database. There are a few problems here:
    1) the database is access(I got that part down)
    2) the database is located on a windows server and the webserver is linux.


    How do i connect to a database on another server? Anyhelp would be awsome. Thanks guys

    If you are creating a ODBC connection then you should try with the IP of the machine.
