Right click on the website project properties
Under start options you can use a custom server
then set your specific page.

Note that remote debugging must be enabled on the server.

you're in IIS . . . you can't view that from your local machine.

In order to do that you would have to remote desktop to the server and view IIS from there.

Try following this guide:
