Accessing remote MS SQL databases from PHP web pages

P: 1
Hi all! Here is my issue -

I have a linux box set up as the server for the external webpage for my organization using apache/PHP to write the pages. I also use MySQL on this box for storing data to be displayed in some of the webpages.

However, I have another 2003 server set up as an intranet that uses MS Sharepoint as a way for scheduling, document storage, etc. what I want to be able to do his get some information from within Sharepoints SQL databases to display on the external webpages.

What do I need to do to achieve this. I assume I'll need some PHP libraries to allow for this and will probably have some configuration issues accessing on a remote machine on the "inside" of the network. Can anyone offer guidance since I'm sure this must have been done before?

Also, can anyone recommend a free frontend I can use to look at the SQL databases on the 2003 server? Thanks!
