ASP.Net Website Administration Tool not available in Vstudio 2005 menu

JJA
I am exploring use of the new ASP.NET 2.0 membership facilities.

Using Visual Studio 2005 on WinXP, I have one little site in
http://localhost/mySite which exposes the menu choice "ASP.Net
Configuration" when I click on the menu bar item "Website".

And yet, using Vstudio 2005 on WinXP, I have another little site in
http://some.remotePC.com/mySiteA which does NOT expose the menu choice
"ASP.Net Configuration".

some.remotePC.com is the machine near me that hosts other sites
(classic ASP, ASP.NET 1.1, etc.). Of course, it has .Net framework 2.0
installed on it and http://some.remotePC.com/mySiteA is configured to
run with ASP.NET 2.0 in an application pool configured for that.

So, back at my desktop running Vstudio 2005, why can't I visit the
"Website" menu and click on "ASP.Net Configuration" for this latter
site but the one locally hosted I see that choice.

Thanks for your time helping me.

That is normal. The web config tool pins up locally using the built in web
server. it is basically a front for the web.config files in the app, as well
as a conduit for the database. You can dupe the site locally and configure
there. Then copy the web.config files. Point to the remote dataase and any
users created will be created on the remote site.

Hope this helps.
