I am a programmer in Visual Basic 6.0 and I am using MySQL database. In our office, I am using MySQL ODBC connector 3.5 as DSN connector via LAN networking. The company demands to create a solution so that employees to work from their homes. I didn't commit since they aren't able to access the program because LAN connection is limited to our office. Is it possible to access the database VIA Internet using MySQL ODBC Connector 3.5? If this is possible, can you provide the steps that I need to follow?
