Virtual web sites and managed virtual servers do not support MS Frontpage Server Extensions.

Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)
ODBC provides a standard software API method for using database management systems (DBMS). It is independent of most programming languages, database systems, and operating systems. For example, ODBC allows you to use virtually any Windows database product to connect to and manage your database, including Microsoft Access, Paradox for Windows, or custom applications developed with Visual Basic or Delphi.

With some security restrictions. ODBC can be used to connect to MySQL or PostgreSQL databases hosted by Skyway.

If you want ODBC from your Windows computer to our Postgres database, you must obtain a driver that supports it. This driver is available from http://odbc.postgresql.org/ and is installed on your Windows computer. The driver is NOT TESTED and, like any Windows Software, NOT SUPPORTED by Skyway West.

ODBC is either secured by password or RFC1413 IDENT (i.e. the remote computer guarantees that the user is who he says he is). The user must also be associated with a static IP address on our network. The ODBC connection itself is NOT SSL encrypted.
