I am not quite sure what you are asking here. You don't say how they are
connecting to the database server. Usually the connection string will
specify which server you are going to connect to. Access to your database
server/database will depend on the security that you put in place and you
can restrict the access to your own application by using an application
If the MSDE instance does not contain a copy of your database then there
will not be able to run your application.
