Hi,
I wish to have a connection string for my ftp server with Static IP, Any Sample Query will be helpful.

My Codes:-
MyConnectionString="
Provider=Microsoft.ace.Oledb.12.0; Data Source='ftp://111.222.33.444/MyFolder1/MyFolder2/MyFolder3/MyAccessDB.accdb'; UserID='MyUserID'; Password='MyPassword'; Persist Security Info=False;";

or may be 
Provider=Microsoft.ace.Oledb.12.0; Data Source='ftp:////111.222.33.444//MyFolder1//MyFolder2//MyFolder3//MyAccessDB.accdb'; UserID='MyUserID'; Password='MyPassword'; Persist Security Info=False;";

Thanks for the Guidances

Thank Regards

You can't.
FTP is not a file system, but a protocol to transfer data, and it doesn't allow directly access to files. FTP is not made for this scenario, and will not work.

Ok. Once I need to access my files directly, How to connect, But the joke is before my hardware support staff, gave me the files direct access by IP. But I don't know the hardware configuration scenario.

Thanks

None of what you said made any sense at all. The only way to get Access to use a database on another machine is if the database file is exposed through a network Share in Windows or an SMB share in a Linux environment.

I suspect that they have given you an FTP link so you can copy the file to your local machine - although it is possible to use an Access file as a multiuser DB I've never seen it used that way without giving huge problems, particularly on a network. If you are single user, the copying the file is fine. If you need to share the data between users, then you really should be looking at a server based system such as SQL Server, or MySql.

I have, when I worked for CBP. It wasn't pretty, and that's about all I can get away with saying. :)

You're probably right about the FTP link.

I did - once - as well.
Never again - I try to learn from my mistakes! :laugh:
