problem when trying to run my application from the remote machine

i got some problems in running my application from the server...I have used ASP DOT NET 2005 and SQL SERVER 2005.Actually the web application i had made is run in my pc and our LAN.We are using the remote sql server and it's running quiet well.I dont have problem in the database..It's ok..Now i want to put my application in the remote server..i dont have much permission of the remote server..I was asked to put my application in that server computer so that they can browse our pages..I dont have much idea about how to put my application in the server computer and run it.What i did is firstly,i just copied the application..I have also tried by publishing it and making virtual directory in my computer and then upload those .. means ..published and virtual directory over the server computer...But i dont know where should i put those folders in the server computer..so that they can be browsed. i also dont know should i have to upload the published and virtual directory there..Or there need the administrator of that server publish and create virtual directory being in server computer.What should be done and how to run it????

The IIS at the hosting server whould enable your website.

Usually you can create a folder within the default directory of IIS (I dont know if that can be changed) C:\inetpub\wwwroot\yourwebsiteDiretory

Now if you want to view your website...
put the servername\yourWebsiteDirectory
and the start page of your project should emerge there,
You can simply copy paste your website files into that folder

If you want the IIS at the remote server to map the routing to your system it will have to be manahged by the administrator there..(guessing...but should be something similar)

Do you mean like the way we create the virtual directory and run in the local network, there need the same process to be done to run it in the remote server ???That is the admin of the remote server also have to recreate the virtual directory and do the same process to run it ?? So that the IIS of that server computer recognizes our application ...Is it ?

creating a virtual directory means that the website does not reside withing inetput/wwwroot
It maps the request to the directory that it actually resides in

well that means the admin of the remote server has to published or create virtual directory to browse the application .....!!!! Is it so..
