I need to connect to a database from an active server page. The problem is that the active server page and the database are on two different servers. The active server pages are inside of the firewall and need to call to the database which is read-only and lives outside of the firewall. The only way to connect to the server (the one that is outside of the firewall) is through an http connection. So my quesition is whether or not this can be done? If so, how do I do it. Thanks to anyone whom has the answer.
