When using the Attach to Process dialog box, you can select another machine that has been set up for remote debugging. (See How to: Set Up Remote Debugging for more information,). When you have selected a remote machine, you can view a list of available processes running on that machine and attach to one or more of the processes for debugging.

To select a remote machine

  1. In the Attach to Process dialog box, check the Transport box to make sure the proper transport is selected. Default is the correct setting for most cases. (See Remote Debugging Setup for more information.)

  2. Use the Qualifier listbox to choose the remote machine name by one of the following methods:

    1. Type the name in the Qualifier listbox, or

    2. Click the drop-down arrow attached to the Qualifier listbox and select the machine name from the drop-down list, or

    3. Click the Browse button next to the Qualifier list to open the Browse for Computer dialog box. In the Browse for Computer dialog box, use the tree control to locate the machine you want, and then click OK.

    The Transport setting persists between debugging sessions. The Qualifier setting persists between debugging sessions only if a successful debugging connection occurs with that qualifier.
