This is a general, and obviously a newbie, question but is it possible to create a client-side ActiveX browser plug-in to maintain and open connections to a server-side .dll to update DB fields?<BR><BR>I was thinking of using, if possible, ActiveX to replace the the traditional Java applet/servlet scenario to log client-side activity. I wanted to have users download and install a signed ActiveX control which would periodically send Web site usage usage data back up to the server to write into either a DB or text file (since connecting directly to the DB is unsafe).<BR><BR>I don&#039;t know where to start but I do know that I would like to develop in VB6, if possible.<BR><BR>Thanks for any suggestions,<BR><BR>Reginald Dawson
