    It's usually impossible to access a MDB file over the Internet; as the JET
    OLEDB driver won't work directly over TCP/IP, only over a LAN. You need an
    intermediate transport layer such as RDS (deprecated by Microsoft many years
    ago for security reasons) or a VPN.

    For Geocities, I don't know exactly but I seriously doubt about these two
    possibilities. For more informations on this subject, see:
