As far as I know, you can not connect to an ODBC source remotly.  If I 
could do this (make a NT server running ODBC look like a SQL server), it 
would make the app I'm working on much easier to develop.  I have found 
a program called ODBCSocketServer, that will send and recieve ODBC 
requests via an XML stream.  This works ok, but is limited and difucult 
to work with.  At the current time it it incapable of sending over a 
secure port also.  If you happen to find a way to make the ODBC server 
take remote requests, please let me know (I will from then on refer to 
you as god).  Hope this helps.
