Some explanations:
myServerAddress = this is the name of your server (or ip-address) (example: Company001)
Initial Catalog = this is the name of your database (example:  OrderDb)
myUsername & myPassword: the name and password of the database user that you use to login to your database.

Using connection as new SqlConnection("Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;")
     connection.Open()
     ' Use the connection
 End Using

If you are using integrated security (your username for sql server is the same as windows, you just need this string:
Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;Integrated Security=SSPI;
