How to connect to SharePoint site with Visual Studio?

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
My IT department setup SharePoint Server 2010 on the server for me to play with. On my client machine, I installed Visual Studio Pro 2010, hoping to learn how to develop Web Parts.

But I can't seem to connect to the SharePoint website I created via VS. I can connect fine with SharePoint Designer 2010.

(I've already created a App with a top level Site Collection, and Site. Tested fine)
