ODBC can be used with remote databases. When creating the DSN you
specify the hostname or IP address of the server.
Aside: for Win32 the ODBC setup is in Control Panels. For Mac OS X the
ODBC Manager is useless- I recommend using the commercial one from

Are you confusing the database server with the database client
libraries? No matter what database you choose, if it's running on a
remote server, then the client user should not need to download and
install the database- all they need is the client libraries, whether
they be ODBC drivers, or revDB drivers.
