Default How to connect a PDA to a remote mysql database?

Hi guys,

I am developing a smart device application in visual studio 2005. I need to connect the compact device (PDA) to a mysql database which is supposed to be on another computer in the same office. Don't know how to do it. Is there a direct way to access it using oledb provider for mysql (if any) or i have to create a web service and use it? Please help me by providing the code for connectivity.

A simple search on Google for "Compact Framework MySql" produced 100s of results.

I can't verify that any one of them works as I have never done this myself.
