Hello everyone, I am developing a vb.net application that uses CD codes. The user inserts the cd code into my application, which needs to verify that it has not been used. I initially thought to use a mysql database to hold the keys and such, however I have had no luck on finding the connection string for a remote mysql database. I really do not want to resort to storing the keys in simple data files. If anyone has any suggestions or knows of a way to connect to a remote mysql db server from multiple computers all over the world please let me know.

Thanks,
Tyrocx
