I want to access the methods of a dll that is not managed. Seems to be vb6 from my best guess and what I know about the program.That part I have managed to figure out. If I drag the x.dll to my bin folder, the interpreter wrapper is created, etc. I can access the methods in the dll just fine. The problem is the database connection.

For informational purposes: The dll is compiled for a vbscript .asp website. There are a few methods in the dll that just manipulate the input (which I can access error free- its how I tested the dll usage), but most make a db call to get or set or update, etc. data in the db. The dll expects an ADODB connection. The asp files are setup such as:
set DllObj = server.CreateObject("dll.class")
set connect = server.createobject("ADODB.Connection")
It is using a DSN but just as easily could be a DSN-Less connection. My problem is that the dll expects the connection to be open and available to it. Can I make a ADODB database connection available and open for this dll in a vb.net asp.net website.Basically,I need to use the business logic and db data changes through this dll, but want to make the front end in asp.net.I know there is an ADODB namespace in .net somwhere and I tried using it but it was not doing the job and really, I did not quite understand how to.
