Help configuring remote debugging on web server 2008
Posted on 2014-04-02
I am having trouble connecting to an application I want to remote debug.
I have installed the remote debug on the server and run the program. I now have
Msvsmon started a new server named 'S12392934:4016'. Waiting for new connections.
I have opened the project using FTP in visual studio and can now access the files etc.
When I go to debug the project compiles and prompt for a user name pass;
I have then enter this info with the server name (i.e. S12392934\admin)
afte it accepts these I get the message
Unable to start debugging on the web server. The visual Studio Remote Debugging Monitor (MSVSMON.EXE) does not appear to be running on the remote computer. This may be because a firewall is preventing communication to the remote computer. Please see Help for assistance on configuring remote debugging.
Clicking help goes to the following KB;
now how do I ensure point 2 is correct? do I enter S12392934:4016 as the project name? as it doesnt accept the ':' char?
any ideas what I shoudl do next?
