So change your data source to point to the database server that you want.

thank you,, it is really nice website..
I think Sql data base file dosn't support remote servers , as far as I see in this website it is only support local files. or I must use SQL server instead of SQL database file

I've tried to change
Data Source=(localdb)\v11.0;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Database1.mdf;..

to

Data Source=(192.168.0.11)\v11.0;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Database1.mdf;..
and even
Data Source=(192.168.0.11)\(localdb)\v11.0;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Database1.mdf;..

but didn't find the server
