I'm having problem with trivial remote development. I have a local and a remote Linux machine which I want to develop on. I want to access it simply over SSH (no gdb server or any other weird stuff) and I'm having problem with setting up the project.

I managed to setup the remote machine in the remote system explorer, but how do I setup a project? I simply want the exactly same setup that I use for local project, only not executed locally but on the remote system using ssh.

Here you can find detailed instructions.
http://www.eclipse.org/ptp/documentation/2.1/org.eclipse.ptp .rdt.doc.user/html/gettingstarted/creating_a_remote_project. html

You must install the necessary plugins beforehand (C/C++ Remote...).

I'm confused. What is the RDT server? Is it required?

I need a setup of remote development that will work over SSH (ssh, scp, sftp) only, with no extra software (beyond development tools - gcc, gdb) running on the server machine.

You don't need the RDT server. It is possible to use just ssh for the connection. The RDT server, however, will enhance your remote experience (indexer, remote editing etc.)

I simply can't get it working (can't do the no. 12 in the tutorial, both next and finish are greyed out).

I'm going to create a new user and do a new clean eclipse installation. What exactly do I need to install into Eclipse to have a working remote C/C++ project?

Oh well, that puts me back to square one.

Both the FAQ and an open Bug in CDT suggest that it can't be done.

Which bug? Can't you use SSHFS?

Yes I can use SSHFS. The filesystem is the least of my worries.

Hi,

I am interested in this feature. Currently I am developing on remote linux machines using NX. There are a lot of performance issues. I would like to try create "remote" project from my windows local PC. I am planning to install RDT server.

Do people use this feature? Does it work? I would appreciate any comments.

@Simon, did it work for you in the end?

Thanks,
Yevgeny

No it didn't work. As far as I can tell (and I spent a lot of hours on this). Its not possible.

Yes, I've come to the same conclusion after many hours of trial and error. NetBeans CND seems to be a ahead on this one. I''ve been using it for a while now and I can really recommend it.

Nevertheless, I believe that it would not require much effort to implement CDT remote development via SSH. I think the key would be a "path mapping feature": some way of telling CDT "my local path X:\devel corresponds to /usr/home/devel on the remote system". Then, this information will have to be used in all the appropriate places, i.e. for building, launching and debugging.
