in reply to Debugger failing to connect to localhost

It looks like you have the "remoteport=localhost:nnn" set in an environment variable called PERLDB_OPTS or possible a config file (called ./.perldb or ~/.perldb) containing parse_options("remoteport=localhost:nnn").

See perldebug and/or

perl -de1 h O ... RemotePort Remote hostname:port for remote debugging ...

For (a little) more information.

    Folks who try Active States Dev Kit end up with this error when the demo runs out because the de-installer doesn't clean this Environment Variable up. So, you will have to do it yourself. You can do it from the system properties on the environment variables tab if you are on 2K/XP.

    He! perl -del dies with the same message, and I definately dont have an env. var. like that set, I've listed all of them below.
    Thanks for the suggestions though, keep them coming :-)

    Update: In fact, I do have that Env Var set. Wake up, smitz
