It's a no.

PlusNet use Unix based servers (FreeBSD to be exact) and Apache webserver software not Microsoft and don't offer any Microsoft based databases, only MySQL.

You need to find a Microsoft based hosting service for your requirements.

Have you considered alternative forum software. Many users run phpBB or Vbulletin forums here. There is also a simple to follow tutorial on installing phpBB which you may like to try: Scripts: Help Installing phpBB

Solution found....

After a bit of looking round, I settled on this format of free forum: http://thesladearchive.phpbbforfree.com/

It's available from http://www.phpbbforfree.com

The site admin is fine, once you get used to it.
You do get a few banner ads, but at least the service is free and very reliable so far.
