connectionstring for VB.Net app which connects to MDB on website

P: n/a
Hello,

I am hoping that someone can provide a code sample using the following
sample information below. I am wanting to create a vb.net application that
is run on a local computer and connects to our database on our website. I
have seen some connection strings for SQL but not MS Access. I think they
would be close to the same but not really sure.

database MS Access: test.mdb
IP Address: 123.456.78.00
website: www.mysite.com
database odbc: mydatabase
user: myuser
password: mypw

I hope I provided enough information and would greatly appreciate any code
samples that anyone could provide.

Thank You,
Rick

I'm only aware of the MS Remote Provider and I don't know whether it will work under ADO.NET. It is
also no longer supported by Microsoft:

The alternative is to use a Web Service or binary Web Remoting.
