    I'm testing VWD, which has some great features over VS.NET2003, but
    there is one feature that it seems to lack: I want to do my
    development and testing on a local testing server.

    Dreamweaver handles this with ease - I can work from files on a
    network share of a testing server and then test the site through that
    server. This way I can use "(local)" db references in my connection
    strings which will also work on my development server after the files
    have been uploaded. The testing server also has nightly backups, so I
    don't need to worry about a HD blowing up on my local workstation.

    VWD seems to want to work through it's own web server. Does anybody
    know a way to tell it to run the site from another IIS machine?
