I'm trying to integrate some type of source code versioning. I come from a VSS background, where our workstations would connect to a server and 'check out' a solution/project into my workstation. Essentially, 'check out' the code into my PC and then ('check in') back to the server.
Anyways, I'm trying to understand how Git works. I assumed that I would install Git in the server (where all source code will reside), and then I'd install an add-on to VS2010 in my workstation to connect to the server. From VS2010 I would add my solution to the server, and do checkins/checkouts.
So, I installed this version of Git in the server , and I can see a box that asks me to create a new repository. What I don't seem to understand is how I can connect locally (from my VS2010) to that server. In my workstation (VS2010), I installed Git Source Control Provider, but I don't see any option that lets me connect to the server.
