trouble creating asp .net projects on remote server

P: n/a
I get these errors when creating a asp .net web application project in VS 2003 on a remote web server:

"Microsoft Development Environment
The Web was created successfully, but an error occurred when trying to configure the application root for this Web. Web projects may not operate correctly without an application root. The returned error was: Active Directory Services cannot find the web server. A possible cause for this is an incompatibility between versions of Internet Information Server (IIS) on the client and the server. The usual cause for this error is creating Web projects on a Windows 2000 or newer server from a Windows NT 4.0 client. You can manually configure the application root using the Internet Services Manager."

"Microsoft Development Environment Unable to set the permissions on the 'bin' folder to restrict browse access. Active Directory Services cannot find the web server. A possible cause for this is an incompatibility between versions of Internet Information Server (IIS) on the client and the server. The usual cause for this error is creating Web projects on a Windows 2000 or newer server from a Windows NT 4.0 client. You can manually restrict browse access to this folder using the Internet Services Manager. "

The solution builds all right but when I try to browse to the page in Explorer it comes back with a runtime error and debugging info is unavailable.

I am running Windows XP with IIS 5.1 and the server I am connecting to is Windows Server 2003. I am using Visual Studio 2003.

I have the directory on the remote server mapped to a drive on my local machine.

Is this a compatibility error as stated in the error messages or are the permissions on the remote server insufficient to create a project with DLL's? I am clueless here. Help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
