hello, this is my code

#include <_sql.au3>
#include <Array.au3>


$Handle= _SQL_Startup()

If $Handle= $SQL_ERROR Then
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Start Connect DesignMachine 3 Error" & @CRLF)
EndIf

$Host = "somehost.somehostsoftware.com,1117\somehost2\testplace"

If _sql_Connect($Handle, $Host, "Reports", "username", "pass") = $SQL_ERROR Then
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Start Connect DesignMachine 4 Error" & @CRLF)
    _SQL_Close()
EndIf

$Query = "SELECT COUNT (*) FROM [Reports].[dbo].[Pref]"

Local $hQuery, $Query_Rows
$hQuery = _SQL_Execute(-1 = -1, $Query)
$iRecords = _SQL_FetchData($hQuery, $Query_Rows)

ConsoleWrite("_SQL_GetTable2D - Error: " & @error)

If $iRecords = $SQL_OK Then

    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "successful. rows = " & $Query_Rows[0] & @CRLF)
Else
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Failed" & @CRLF)
EndIf

I get this error,

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\_sql.au3 (217) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$ADODBHandle.Open("DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=" & $server & ";DATABASE=" & $db & ";uid=" & $username & ";pwd=" & $password & ";")
$ADODBHandle.Open("DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=" & $server & ";DATABASE=" & $db & ";uid=" & $username & ";pwd=" & $password & ";")^ ERROR

Oh sorry maybe not then...I misunderstood the question.

If you start a VPN connection to the network your SQL server is on, then use the server's network name or internal IP, that should work (if it's an option) right? Who owns the SQL server?

i need to confirm 3 things

1. is this in the correct format for external host?

$Host = "somehost.somehostsoftware.com,1117\somehost2\testplace"

2. Can autoit really do client side secure connection?

3. do i need need to use openssl to do this connection?
