Open Connect to Mac Build Agent Dialog
Enter manual connection
Enter incorrect IP
Takes forever with no indication that anything is happening.
There should be a dialog letting you know it is trying to connect
Re assigning to Joe to decide the best UI approach to take to optimize the User Experience
The connection dialog should come up right away. It take soo long to time out that you have no idea if it is even trying to connect.
I think a simple "Attempting to Connect to Mac..." dialog with a spinner would be sufficient. Just some sort of visual indicator to let users know so they don't spam all the buttons, think something is frozen, or assume they are connected.
Fixed in version 18.104.22.1681 (xma-refactoring)
