I have created a remote server in ASA 9, and all seems fine with the connection.

But How do I query this remote server?

sp_remote_tables PSCRM

shows me a list of all the tables, but how do I query an individual table? I have tried various combinations but everythings throws up an error.

You will usually create a so-called proxy table for each remote table/view you want to access, cf. that doc topic Creating proxy tables (SQL) .

Furthermore, you can "directly" access remote tables by using the FORWARD TO statement - but then you are not able to easily connect local and remote data.

Please note that both links go to the v12.0.1 doc set but should apply to ASA 9 as well.
