Add and Enable/Disable a Remote USB Connection

To add a remote USB tool connection in MPLAB® X IDE:


Select New Connection

Select Tools > Embedded > Remote USB Debugging > New Connection.



Enter New Connection

In the “New Connection” dialog, fill in the information for the remote USB development tool. The IP Address and Port number are taken from the MPLAB Remote USB Communications Server application. Click OK when done.



Enable/Disable New Connection

The new connection should appear in the “Remote Connections” dialog list with a checkbox next to its name. Use this check box to enable/disable the connection. Click OK.

The new connection will appear on the Managed Tools tab, “Remote Connections” list. The name will be grayed out as you cannot select to enable/disable the connection here; you must go to the Remote Connections dialog. Click Manage Remote Connections to open this dialog again.

Note: If a server connection is enabled but the server is powered off or otherwise not available, there will be a 20-30 second delay before notification of server not found/not available. Therefore disable any connections for which you know the server is not available to avoid delays.
