Network Error with VS2012 Integration

I had a previous version of EP that worked well with VS2012 that I got for free from some link somewhere. Not sure what version it was but had considerably less features. Purchased the fully licensed new version. Uninstalled the old version and deleted the inetration from VS2012. Installed the new version: :
"Network Error (tcp_error) - A communication error occurred: "Connection refused" The Web Server may be down too busy, etc...." The simulator works fine as a stand alone with the web site on our test system but I need to get the integrated version working right for development. And everything works OK from VS2012 IDE using a regular browser.

Any ideas?

    Hmm, that is really strange, because VS has no bearing on the simulator's
    network stack. Are you saying that if you launch the simulator standalone
    and point it at the exact same site you *don't* get that error? Does the
    site use basic authentication?

    We use normal user/password authentication - but it doesn't get that far. I noticed this today (should have included in the first post).

    Here are the site addresses shown in the browser & simulator:
    From Browser:
    Starting WCF Service: http://localhost:55298/WCF_RMSData.svc/
    Starting MVC Site: http://localhost:55979/Account/Login?ReturnUrl=%2F

    From Simulator:
    Starting WCF Service:
    Starting MVC Site: (same or nothing happens - not sure which)

    I get the IDE popups that the service and the web site started correctly - I'm just not hooked up to them with the simulator.
