in reply to How to remote debug perl script usip EPIC tool of eclipse.?

It has been a long time since I used Eclipse/EPIC and I didn't try to remote debug a Perl script. However, the documentation says it's possible: 6.2.3 Perl Remote: Debug a Perl Script on a Remote Machine (PDF)

What goes wrong when following the steps described in chapter 6.2.3?

Main obstacles:

  • firewalls (personal- and network-) could block the remote connection (ports 5000-10000)
  • insufficient permissions to run the debug server at the remotelocal host (WinXP)
  • forgetting to run start_epicDB.pl at the remote host (linux)

I cannot decode your last question, sorry. I read it as Remote Perl program requires modules/libraries that are not available for Win-XP, thus remote debugging is required..

Update: This quote from the docs might be relevant:

If modules on your local and remote host differ, debugging results may be quite meaningless. So try to have the same Perl version installed on both hosts and make sure all modules you require (which are not part of your Eclipse project) are identical.
