welcome to MSFN
you can access remote database either thhough IP address, or if the computer on your network, just throught computer name.
if you give me a little more details, i probably will be able to help you more. but in general use the connection string just as if you were connecting to you local computer, and replace the computer name with either IP or different computer name
