Returns

1 if the connection was successful, 0 otherwise.

Optional Named Arguments

User Name(name)

Specifies the quoted user name for the connection.

Password(password)

Specifies the quoted password for the connection.

Prompt

A quoted keyword. "Always" means always prompt before attempt to connect.
