Xamarin Mac Agent can not connect


  • When trying to using Xamarin in Visual Studio Community 2015 and trying to connect to my Macbook using the remote login, VS is trying to get a SSH Fingerprint and is returning "Couldn't retrieve SSH Fingerprint, PLease ensure the Mac is reachable and Remote Login is enabled."

    I went into Sharing and enabled my remote login for mac by adding my user name to the list.  (I also tried allowing all users as gueat).  Then I copied my mac name.local to the Visual studio prompt to connect.  this is when it goes out to find finger print and can not.  I used the ssh-keygen to generate a key, however, the key is created in .ssh not /etc.  not sure if that makes a difference.  I copied the .pub file to both just in case and it still fails.

    Any help is appreciated.
