You can't connect to remote Access databases since Access does not have a
TCP daemon.

To connect to SQL server, use Enterprise Manager (bundled with SQL server)
or a 3rd party tool.

In addition to Lucas, you cannot direct access a msAccess database using the
Internet, however an alternative is a webservice.

See this great walkthrough how to use that.

I hope this helps a little bit?
