Okay so plug the database server into the same router/hub/switch that everyone else's computer is plugged into.

You could also just allow specified user account to connect to the database, but It seems that he dosnt wnat that.

You connect your application to the database over the network that connects all of the computers and servers within the domain. The internet has nothing to do with it.

You will need to know the connection details to be able to use the database.

This is really basic stuff. I suggest you buy some books on development and start there.

is another way? cause I'm not good client server and multithreading
