    I am working on Eclipse 3.2, perl 5.8.8 and the latest EPIC (downloaded yesterday). When i configured the remote debug according to the tutorial and launch it through the debug button, I found out that the debug port does not be listened, checking it with "netstat -an", without any error report. And when I start the start_epicDB.pl from  the target box, the program complains can not connect the port.

    My questions are:
    1. I suppose to check the port on local box, which runs the ecplise, Is my understanding right?
    2. I tried to change the port to some other value, after I read some previous discuss, but all failed. Is there any one knows why the port does not be opened?
    3. Is there any log to check for EPIC?

    Thx in advance.

      there's a good chance that code is just broken - perhaps jan can comment further.

      i'm planning on taking a look at this code over the holiday as well.

      Jan, thanks for taking care of this issue.

      I tried it on a solaris box, and don't find the port either....

      And on both platform, i met a "internal error" dialog when i tried to stop the started remoted process...

      Please try with 0.5.23. At the very least, the error logging should be improved. Read the "Perl Remote" section in the online help included with 0.5.23 for details about how the ports are handled.

      Jan, thx for keep working on this issue.

      I only find the source version of the 0.5.23, and i must admit that i am not sure how to compile it. Is there any compiled 0.5.23 version online?

        0.5.24 is available through http://e-p-i-c.sf.net/updates/testing
        You should be able to install it using the Update Manager as described in the user's guide.

        0.5.23 is there as well, but you should not use it as it contains a rather nasty bug in the debugger (variables don't appear at all in Eclipse 3.2).

      Jan, it works fine here....with a simple test. :-)

      Still not clear about the display and some other stuff, i would like to learn it by myself.

      Thanks for your great work.
