I am new to using IBM DB2 as a database.  I have installed and created a database on one of our networked server and I can access it just fine using the tools provided by IBM.

But now I want to access the DB2 database through the MS Visual Studio Server Explorer and create a connection through there.  However I am having difficulty in locating the correct download  for the DB2 Connector for .NET in MS Visual Studio.  Do any of you know where I can find this.  I've seen references to it being an add-in for Visual Studio but it does not appear as one of my add-in that are avaialable.

Nor does it appears as a connection object when I try to create a connection to the DB2 Database.
I can set up a sever connection though.  But not a database connection.

I have installed the IBM DB2 development tools but it does not appear come with the DB2 connector.
