    I doubt you'll find a free webhost that will allow remote connections to their mysql service. Get an account from gatorhost, it's like 5$/month...

    Hi Samfisher,

    I don't know why anyone would want to do this, but could you not use Iframes?
    Just thinking out loud.

    Regards,

    Dave

    If you are referring to MSSQL, yes you can connect to a remote server using the IP. I am not sure about SQL only hosts though, try google.

    Technically you could connect remotely.
    But for performance issue, why would you?
    Your best bet is to move onto a different web hosting cie and access it locally.
