Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

Yeah, you don't want to be doing that on a live query basis.

You *could* have 2 loosely coupled (using something like WDDX
or other XML schema) boxes, so updates are pulled from and pushed
to the sql server box by your CF/MySQL box on a batch basis.

It's used a lot for content syndication, and also for user data
(moving from production environment to offline data warehouse).

: From: Josh Spiegel
: Thank you for your help.  I might restart the

: problem is not the traffic.  We have a client
: that wants us to develop something for them and
: they want sql server.  I want it to be in cold
: fusion.  Our server has cold fusion theirs doesn't.
: Their server has sql server and ours doesn't so I
: thought that we could still "host" their page on
: our server with out paying for sql server.

using separate boxes is really only an advantage when they're on the same
network.  trying to connect to the sql server over the open net is not
to give you acceptable results -- if you can even get it to work.  you're
likely to run into access issues with your server and their server both
being behind firewalls, along with a host of other connection-related
