    Is your database even set up to allow remote connections?

    Try without the port #
    Code:
    Server=113.160.248.114

    Using an ini file makes no difference, provided that you have the correct values in the ini file then it would work just as if they were hard coded.
    That said you had another thread where the values were hard coded and it was not working and if you have not solved that issue then using an ini file is just adding to the possible areas where you may have a problem.

    You also did not answer the question as to if the server is setup to allow remote connections.

    I seem to remember you saying that you were able to connect on your local machine but when trying to connect to the db on a remote machine you could not connect. If that be the case then an ini file is not going to help. You need to make sure the server is set to allow remote connections and make sure you are using the correct connection info. You also need to make sure that port is not blocked by the firewall.

    Also you say it fails but not even a hint as to what actually happens, error message?
    Hard to provide help when you do not provide enough info.

    Well that question has nothing to do with VB at all, but the error message is telling you what the problem is. It says that the user owns a schema and can not be deleted which means you would need to remove the schema and any other objects owned by that user first.
