We have an extra Windows 2003 Server that I am hoping can be used to speed up development process on a web site we're producing. We are trying to reduce lag time from our really slow ASP.Net local Development server by implementing a development server that hosts a dev version of our website though IIS. I have multiple questions surrounding the possibility of doing this.
Environment: Spare server (WinServ2k3) named "Spare" Visual Source Safe (3 Users) holds our solutions on server "VSS" Visual Studio runs on client A,B, and C Visual Studio publishes releases to an externally hosted hosting service.
I'm not sure where to get started. I know I could setup IIS to mirror what our production IIS server looks like. But how would I change our debug to point to the development server? And how do I propagate change to the development server through use of VSS (if some one else checked a file in, that change should be reflected in the development server).
Our asp.net development localhost servers just runs insanely slow.
