I'm not entirely sure exactly what you mean by "the database would have to
be accessible from
> tcp/ip". If you are proposing making port 3050 accessible through a
firewall, I think this is a security disaster waiting to happen.

I don't know what isp's usually provide. I would think if one lets you run
a database they would also give you a ssh shell account you could
administer it from. Does this address the problem you are trying to solve?
