    If you are trying to get information out of a database on the other server, you can set up a connection from your web server to that database just like you would set up a connection to a database on your web server.<BR><BR>If you wish to get the results of an executed http call, there are several ways to do this. The Microsoft xmlhttp component, for instance, can be used in an ASP script. You can direct it to execute an http request and use the results in your ASP script.<BR><BR>Search for xmlhttp here at 4guys. I think there is an article on it.
