Visual studio 2015 alpha logs
Hello, I am running Mac Os Sierra parallels,
Unfortunately, I get the error Can't Connect to Sam's iMac, Please try again.
I have tried everything on the connecting to a Mac troubleshooting page https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/ios/getting_started/installation/windows/connecting-to-mac/troubleshooting/
I have also looked through every similar post on this forum and have tried every possible solution, but I am still getting the error.
I can get an ssh connection via Git bash and execute commands as well completely fine.
I have tried visual studio 2015 on Windows 7 and I have tried visual studio 2017 on Windows 10, I have tried both in alpha and in stable. The mac agent does seem to find the mac as it creates the XMA files every time i delete it, although it has only successfully connected once. I have attached my logs from visual studio 2015, please let me know if you need more information. Thank you.

Also the logs on the mac say "May 25 15:31:58 sparedev2 com.apple.xpc.launched (come.openssh.sshd.3C4F617A-9923-4BAD-9884-DFE5475838DF): Service exited with abnormal code: 255"
It would be great if you could attach the mac logs (˜/Library/Logs/Xamarin-4.5) which are not automatically included in the zip because of the failing connection.
Do you have any extra information or update about this problem?
Sorry for the late reply, I have solved the issue now. I fixed it by downgrading to El Capitan OS.
Thank you anyway.
