I have developed a system which should be accessed remotely. the system reads sql credentials from a notepad file to authenticate to the remote sql server. however, when trying to connect, the system says: "request for odbc permission failed". but if i put the application on the client machine together with the application, it connects to the remote machine. what is the cause for failure if the application and the configuration file is put on the server and invoked remotely by creating a short-cut to the application to client machines?
