Problem accessing remote DB from an EXE invoked by ASP.NET web app

P: n/a

process. After it is invoked it doesnt interact with the web application
again. The exe has a problem connecting to a remote database. It says 'access
is denied'.

When I tried to run the same exe from a windows application, it connects to
the DB.

Please provide me with a solution to my problem.
Have a good day!

Thanks and regards,
