    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:

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
