General questions

Oz
New to using databases that are NOT Access. New to MS SQL Server. I'd
like help understanding some concepts.

Firstly, I'd like to know how to connect to a database using MS SQL
Server on a remote web server using Windows XP; I know the IP and have
the username and password to connect...but what program do I use?
Suggestions, appreciated.

Secondly, I'd like to make changes to the remote database - anyone
suggest programs to use?

Regards,
OZ

Well, what you want to do? It seems that most people that connect to
MS SQL Server from web servers uses ASP or ASP .Net, which means that
they use the ADO or ADO .Net libraries. Of course, this presumes that
you use IIS. If you are in the Java world, you can use JDBC.

But "program", that sounds a little funny. SQL Server comes with some
general query tools, but you would not call these from a web server.
Rather you write code to access the server from the web server.

Same here. Through code.
