Default design question


I have a website and an access database serving data to asp pages.
I need to use the data collected by the website to talk to an an Application that runs on my desktop. ( I have the API to interface to this app in VB).

So the question is what method should i use to connect my desktop application to my remote webserver ?
Ive looked into VB connecting through OLEDB but it would seem with all the new application sorftware around i should be doing this in a much wiser way, Im a new user to .net finding the transition difficult and slow (even with all the wrox books) but if you guys can give me a solid method then I'll investigate and learn.

Thanks for your advice !
