The easiest is using the VS 2005 Designer create the Application Settings.

To add application settings in the Project Designer

1. Select a project in Solution Explorer; on the Project menu, click Properties.
2. Select the Settings pane.
3. Click a blank row in the Settings grid.
4. Enter a name for the setting in the Name column. The name cannot contain spaces. e.g server
5. Select a data type for the setting from the Type drop-down list.
6. Select the scope of the setting from the Scope drop-down list. The setting's scope can be Application or User.
7. Enter a default value for the setting in the Value column. The value must be appropriate for the selected data type.

Update
My.Settings.Server = 192.168.1.1

Load
Server = My.Settings.Server
