One thing I know is that you can host your own server with DynIP, the same that foxite uses, in that way you are not depending on the wishes and rules of any provider.
Good thing of course will be if you have any form of broadband, having the telephone on all day *might* end up very costly....
That way you can create your own site.
I don't see why youshould use a fox exe to access an access mdb. did you take a look at the datapages possibility of Access to access access mdb's.
(Wow, that's a lot of accessible access.)
Another option, of course, and more stable (definetely) will be then to use IIS and any form of web api, either foxisapi or west-wind or AFP from Juergen -wOOdy- Wozinsky and his company prolib.
