To make a DSN that connects to a remote SQL Server, create the DSN as you would locally, except use the server's IP Address instead of the server name.

Also, you will have to use SQL Server authentication rather than NT Authentication. That is, you will have to provide a valid SQL Server Login ID and Password because you cannot be automatically authenticated by the remote Windows network.

Hope this helps,
