Is it posible to connect my vb6.0 program to a wamp(mysql, myphpadmin) server on my pc. If i use my program to other part of our country, can i still connect to the wamp server? This is my challenge for a job, the IT personel from a company i am applying wants me to create a server based program.

As long as there is a connection between the computer and the server, whether it's intranet, or internet, you can make the program connect. The main question is changing the connection string to reflect a different server address, and possibly different credentials.

sir, my isp provides me dynamic ip address, how can i connect my program to wamp server through internet, please help me! im new to "ALL" ^^ i have an idea that it will need my ip address to be able to connect, i just feel it ^^ Please explain the flow >_<

as far as I can tell you'll have to change to a static IP( maybe a different ISP), or subscribe to a Dynamic DNS service. I have no personal knowledge of this but if you Google it there are plenty of links that can help you.

This will make the connection for you. Change the detail as needed...

Dim cnServer As ADODB.Connection
        Dim rsServer As ADODB.Recordset

        Set rsServer = New ADODB.Recordset
        Set cnServer = New ADODB.Connection

        cnServer.ConnectionString = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};" _
            & "SERVER=MyIPAddressOfServerHere;" _
            & "Port=3306;" _
            & "DATABASE=MyDatabaseNameHere;" _
            & "UID=MyServerUsernameHere;" _
            & "PWD=MyServerPasswordHere;" _
            & "OPTION=" & 1 + 2 + 8 + 32 + 2048 + 16384

        cnServer.CursorLocation = adUseServer
        cnServer.Open

sir, i changed the port of the wamp to 8081, now i cant connect properly, i have no idea what causing the problem,
i dont have static ip so im testing it over LAN, if i run the program to other computer, it should connect to wamp running on another computer. But got an error. Please help me ^__^

sir what does this means?
"OPTION=" & 1 + 2 + 8 + 32 + 2048 + 16384

im using MySql from oracle now, can i just put the ip address generated by my router for the server name? like 192.168.1.108 to test my connection to the other lan computer?

its funny but it worked through LAN, thank you all for the help, i think i will be needing an static ip add and some NASA level encryption(which i still dont have an idea to make ^__^) heres the code

Public cn As ADODB.connection
Public rs As ADODB.Recordset

Sub connection()

Set cn = New ADODB.connection

With cn
    .ConnectionString = "Driver={Mysql ODBC 3.51 Driver}; server=192.168.1.100; port=3307; database=2mhzbrain; user=2mhzbrain; password=EqUaL626; OPTION= 1 + 2 + 8 + 32 + 2048 + 16384;"
    .Open
    '.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    .CursorLocation = adUseServer
End With

End Sub
