I'm using VS 2017 15.5.2 community with xamarin on windows 10, and connect to a macbook under macos high sierra 10.13.1 with xcode 9.2 and vs 7.3.2 (build 12). Everything is up to date.
I can connect from pc to mac through ssh without issue.
I was able to compile and run ios an ios app yesterday from windows 7, but after updated my iphone the compiled app wasn't launched when trying to debug so I decided to update xcode and also windows because I add other issue on my pc so I installed windows 10 (fresh install).
Now in windows when I start the mac agent and try to connect it seems to connect, ask for mac logins and when I validate after few seconds I receive the message "Error: Couldn't connect to Macbook de Gregory, please try again" and VS crashes after some seconds.
I tried connecting the mac agent with the ip, in my sshdconfig I put:
with no change, I deactivated and reactivated Remote Loging on the mac with no effect.
Created attachment 26013 [details]
Changing the product to be the VS extensions which is the correct product. The team behind it will take care.
It works now, I don't really know why, things I remember I did since last time:
-copied the project from windows to mac
-opened the project in vs mac and try to connect to my visualstudio git without success
-tried ssh connection from mc to visualstudio git, trusted host, but said access denied
-tried again in visualstudio, but fail
-on windows opened the project, didn't tried to connect mac agent, tried to launch debug on ios simulator (still from windows) and mac agent dialog appeared, I added the ip and the connection worked.
Now the mac agent connect itself...
