Working on Visual Web Studio Project Remotely

I am familiar with creating and building a local web project then publishing to a production box.  The question is, how can I share the development such that the project is located remotely (with remote debugging service installed) and have a couple people work on the same project?  I cannot seem to work out if/how its even possible to create a new web application (not a web site) where the files are stored remotely.

Thanks!

visual studio dosen't care what box the files are on as long as you have access. if you created the site on the remote box using that box the found the files on another computer it can work just like it would if it where local. some other tips, if in the properties of the project you look at how it is built, debuged, you will see an option of whatt server to use to build the site the default is a built in web hosting service run by Visual web developer. you can change this to the remote box's IIS system that it will eventualy run on. also VWD has a good system where you can have a full version on both your box and the remote box. this way you can make and test changes before uploading them but it is all still stationed at the remote box. you can do this in a way simular to how you would publish a new site. hope this helps.

try this. go to file -- new web site.  then when selecting the location either click browse then either ftp or html. then fill in the needed fields depending on witch one you will use. i suggest ftp but it way be diffrent in your case.  also you can select the drop down box beside the location field for the web site and choose html or ftp there but either way gets you to the same place and the first choise gives you more options. hope this works. if you need help on understanding the fields (such as directory in ftp) please reply and i will try to help.

YEa that much I knew about.  I want to use a PROJECT through with remote debugging and what-not.  So I want to reate a new PROJECT with the files being stored remotely.

there are two ways to work with the remote files. either use a live site where all files are on the remote box this way when you build and test it, it is all run on the remote box. also you can work with a copy on your local box. this way offers more protection for your files but has less remote debuging options. you can set up the extent of remote deguging for this option using the method described in the first post. either way creation is done exactly the same way. the diffrence is when you open the site if using the second method you will first have to import the remote site. but if editing a live version you just have to open it using the url as the location. note since this way both reads and writes to an external source it will run much slower.
