vb.net - step thru code remotely

I am used to working with vb.net inside a small environment, right on the server, which is nice when it comes to debugging, I can set a breakpoint on and step through  with the visual studio that is installed on the same server with the IIS, SQL SVR,Viz Studio...

now I am in a different environment, where I work thru source control software like Surround SCM.  This is where you have to check in and check out files, making it locked, its a team environment.  So fine I can check out files bring it down locally and check it back in...but now the problem is, how do I step thru the code once I check it out as I need to set breakpoints and stuff, but once local it doesnt have access to the data, server controls on the server...?

Can you check out your files to a development machine that has the data, server controls, etc.?  Even in a shared code environment, 2 people generally are not making changes to the same files at the same time.

>>wow that would be nice, no this is a small shop the only machines we have are the test machine with the test sql svr, test iis, and the same with the production side...there is no loggin on to the server itself allowed only working on our local pcs....I would imagine this would be a problem....

I think "Local PCs" is what he meant. You need to setup your local PCs to be able to run the software (whether its desktop or web). For example, I checkout from TFS and build and test on my local machine then check in. The solution I am working on works on Sharepoint with SQL Server (2 solutions and they contain about 115 projects in total!)
