Visual Studio.NET/ASP.NET - Remote web server

I am a beginner to ASP.NET, I need to develop a web portal using ASP.NET( Visual Studio.NET 2003)

Problem1: I am having some problems in starting my IIS server on the local machine. When I click on start(right lick) on World wide web publishing services in services.msc, I get an error saying "Could Not start World Wide Web publishing services on local computer.Error 127: The specified procedure could not be found."

Now there another web server(Remote) which I actually need to use for my web portal. It is working fine.

Problem2 : When I open Visual studio.Net -> New Project -> Visual Basic & ASP.NET application. It gives me an error saying your web server is not started. First start it.
Like you can see I cannot start my local web server.

Is there a way, I can open a new project by specifing the address of a remote web server(IIS).
Can someone show it to me with an example, how to do that, if its possible?

Thanks,
Anu.

How remote is the server? is it on a VPN ?

You might want to try and re-install IIS on your local machine.

It is possible to create on a remote machine though:


In order to create your web application, you must tbe able to access it like the following:

http://yourserver/yourshare
or
http://www.yourserver.com/yourshare

You will need to have an account on the remote server to create files there. So to create a project lets say SampleWebProject on server www.yourserver.com, follow these steps:

1. Open Visual studio .NET IDE. Select File ->New -> Project ->Visual Basic .NET Projects (or Visual C# Projects) -> ASP .NET Web Application

2. In the location type the URL of your server: www.yourserver.com/MyWebApplicationName and select OK.

3. You will be prompted to enter your user name and password. After the successful login, you will be able to create and compile your applications.
