  • Hi,

     

    Can you try to ping this computer from the remote one?

  • Thanks for quick replies. I checked all the settings mentioned in the links in replies above. I still cannot debug on the remote machine. Both the remote and target machine are in the same domain. I am currently running Visual studio 2008 Professional. The Visual Studio Remote Debugger is running as a service on the target machine logged in as local user. I am administrator on the target machine but a regular user on the remote machine. The error message I am getting also says "Kerberos athentication failed.". Sorry for not mentioning that before. Hope to get this resolved soon.
    Thanks,
    Amrit

  • Now I have changed the service to run under my account name specifically, instaed of local user. The error message "Kerberos athentication failed."  has gone away but still can't connect to VS Remote Debugger. The message i am getting now is  "Unbale to start debugging on the web server. The Visual studio 2008 remote debugger service on the target computer cannot connect back to this computer."
    Thanks

  • Hello Amrit,

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Do we use the same username and password on both computers? Did we grant the account Log on as a service privilege? Please do check items listed in the link suggested by alinap.

    Instead of running remote debugger as a service, one workaround of this issue is to run it as an application.

    Best regards
