Development Remote Connection

Creating a project on a remote machine can fail to validate and hang due to the configuration of the Kerberos security settings.

To confirm that this is the issue, take the following steps:

  1. Start Eclipse using eclipsec.exe located by default at C:\Users\Public\Micro Focus\Product Name\eclipse.
    Follow the steps for creating a remote project. Validation of a remote project occurs at the end of the project configuration process. If the issue is cause by Kerberos security settings the following message will be displayed in the console used to start eclipsec.exe:
    Kerberos Username [userid]
  2. Press Enter.

    This displays a password prompt.

  3. Press Enter.

    This allows the validation to proceed and the project is created successfully.

Once you have identified the issue using the method described above you can implement a workaround. This requires you to disable the gssapi-with-mic authentication method in the Network Connections preferences. To do this:
  1. Click Window > Preferences > General > Network Connections > SSH2.
  2. On the Authentication Methods tab, uncheck gssapi-with-mic.
  3. Click Apply.
  4. Click OK
  5. Repeat the project creation process.
