[wingide-users] Wing does not attach to the remote process

Another pass at this, now that I see the problem:

Looks like either kWingHostPort or debug.passive-hosts is wrong:  The
former should be the IP address of the machine on which Wing IDE runs
and the latter should contain the IP address of the machine on which
the debug process runs.  You've listed the same IP in both.

In my setup debugging a process running on a Linux host (
using Wing IDE running on a Win2K machine (, I have:

debug.passive-hosts=('', '')


To get things to work right, I also set up Samba for file sharing of my
Linux home directory to e: on the win2k box, and have a location map
defined in Wing IDE preferences on the win2k machine:

debug.location-map=('': [('/home/sdeibel/testremote', \

Also, the thing I said earlier about .wingdebugpw before was nonsense.
You don't need to copy that file over unless you want to be able to
Attach/Detach, where the contents is used as part of the security
challenge made to the Wing IDE instance.

If you just let the debug process initiate the debug connection back to
the IDE as it imports wingdbstub, then you don't need .wingdebugpw (unless
you get into channel encryption, which by default is off).

Sorry I missed the error the first time around...
