    hello,

    i have sql server 2000 on my local machine (with enterprise manager etc).

    i want to host a website (on a dedicated server) which talks to sql server,
    but i dont want to buy another license for the server machine that i am
    going to host on (too much money!).

    my question is:
    is there a way around this? ie: is there a free engine or something that i
    can install on my webserver which just stores the datafiles so my webpages
    will work.

    ideally i would like to DTS data to and from the live server, and also use
    my local enterprise manager to view/update data on the live server?

    is this possible?

    thanks

  3. Depending on your requirements, you could deploy MSDE.

    Not sure what this has to do with alt.photography though...

    Easy answer:
    There are essentially free version(s) of Linux available "on the web." Some people think
    it's a better OS for a web server than anything that M$ produces.
