Connect metro app to SQL webServer

I am pretty new to programming.
I know that I can not use System.Data :(

I have seen that i can connect to the SQL database through web services, but don't know how.

I do have IIS installed and SQL server 2008 r2. I am assuming i need to access the server through localhost:1433 or something like that.

I am using VS 2012 for desktop and coding in VB.
I need help with connecting to the DB with read/write permissions.

Thank you Experts,

@TempDBA

I was looking for how to create a web service to make the DB available for connections.

This article was just released last week, and looks like it will solve my problem.

Thanks anyway.
