    How to allow other website updating our information

    I am programming a website for real estate's agents. In this website each agent (about 30) can publish the property they are managing from a private section of this common website.
    Of course some of those agents have already a website on their own. I have been asked to find out a way so they don't need to reenter each property on this common website. That sounds fair enough.
    I want to find a rather easy way to update our database. As you can imagine most of those website have their own way of storing the information, some are in PHP other in ASP using MySql, Access or other programming language or db. The main system, the one I am writing, is in ASP.NET.
    Any idea on how to achieve this ?

    I have to agree with dhtmlgod. Look into WCF or SOAP webservice that they hit and send it the data required which then inserts into your database.

    Hope this helps

    Not every agent but all the public who is browsing the website, each agent only get access to his/her properties for update

    This is what the public is seeing: all the agents who already published their properties did it using our website's admin section.

    Another point: our server is on a shared server and we're using SQL Server 2000
