I'm new to VS 2005 . A whiz a Classic Asp and trying to get comfortable with ASP.NET.
I can easly create a new project (Website) on my VS 2005 and click on the run button and run the website but how to make the websites you build locally work on a remote server?
I did a test with VS2005 and created a new project told its location to be on
It created the project and related files in that location but when I tried to run it just to see the default.aspx with the simple "Hello World" text I get errors on both the production server and by clicking the play button on my VS 2005 Envoriment.
Can someone please advise me on the correct way to deploy project.
Can I not use a remote server to build my projects using pipes \\ and directly edit the project since it is in my LAN ?
Or do I have to create the projects on my workstation then move them to the desired location on the remote server?
If there are tutorials reguarding this information .Please let me know about them
Thank you all for your help.

The best way I have found is to build localy and deploy using the publish function.

Yes.. It would be nice to have a little more detail on the specifics of moving a project to a production server.
Can anyone direct me to a good tutorial regarding the publishing of a website designed in VS2005.
Thanks to anyone who can spare me a bone for this info. :-)

Have you looked into
Visual Studio 2005 Web Deployment Project at all?
MSbuild is a poweful tool and in my case I extended my deployment project to deploy to my staging server, zip content, and generate emails. Here are a couple blog entries on the subject:
