ExtraNet with Vantage or ODBC

We are evaluating Customer ePortal. I have viewed the CyberPlace on-line
demo and what is there is really slick. I got bogged down on the statements
about it being very customizable (by me or custom programming?) and will be
grilling Epicor people (hopefully technical not sales) at Perspectives. I
am told it requires your own web server (as opposed to remote hosting) and
must run on IIS on NT/Win2000 (no Linix/Apache). It passes requests to
Vantage and data back to the web server via XML. I think a lot of modules
sound greater than they are because of the lack of techincal details being
given along with the slick looking screens or reports. As they say the
devil is in the details.

Can you tell me about it? Do you use it? I find there are some Vantage
modules that sound great on paper, but when users go to use them - they
would write the descriptions quite a bit differently.

We are looking into having an Extranet whereby customers could do
inqueries
into our database (or view reports via ODBC).

Is anyone doing this? What is required to:

A. Allow a customer to view Customer related info Live in Vantage.
B. Allow a customer to view a Crystal Report live via ODBC.

How much would this stuff cost?
