NeoBook was primarily designed to create Windows-based applications. If you need to create an application that runs over the Internet, then you may want to look into Java or PHP.

It is possible to create a Windows-based NeoBook application that can access an Internet-based database such as mySQL. However, you need a mySQL database configured for external access. Most off-the-shelf mySQL implementations are configured with external access disabled for security reasons. Once you have the proper mySQL configuration, accessing the database over the Internet is basically just a matter of getting the correct connection string.

Hi Carlos,

You will find interesting posts on this subject doing a search on the forum.

The best approach would be to setup a database on a server and interact with it using html forms in a WebBrowser Object in your NB app and php scripts in the server side. This is my recommendation.
My cent,
