What do you mean you have to maintain your db in ftp? That doesn't make sense to me.

I need to connect my application Database With Ftp. I Run My Application in Multiple Systems. I've Access My DB Through FTP. How to connect my app to FTP

FTP = File TRANSFER Protocol ... I'm not convinced you are CONNECTing to a DB that way. If your database is on another server then you will need the name of the sql instance

is that Right way?
connectionString="Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=ftp:\\\db\MyApplicationDB.accdb;Persist Security Info=True;UName="test";Password="test""

I have serious doubts that this would work. If it does in fact work, I think you will have problems eventually with it. Why don't you just use SQL Server (as your tag suggests)?

FTP is not a connection protocol that can be used to access any kind of database.

Use SQL Server or SQL Server Express and use the TCP/IP protocol to connect to it.

You can't do that. I don't know of a single database provider that will work over FTP, including Access.

You MUST have the Access database on either a local drive OR on a UNC path on a server, NOT an FTP or HTTP path. Those will not work.
