    In “Debug Settings” under Kernel Connection there is custom kernel connection mode and a “Use a built-in Kernel Debugger (KGDB) via a COM port. Both show an option to do debugging over a network port. Can you point me to some documentation on how you set that up. I would rather debug over a network than a serial port. I am debugging a physical system and not a virtual one. Thanks.

    Hi,

    KGDB does not support debugging over network. The option you are mentioning is provided if you are using a VM that maps a guest COM port to a TCP connection on the host side or want to use a hardware COM-to-TCP bridge. In either way, the final connection to the target machine would still go through a COM port, so there is no performance benefit of mapping it to a TCP/IP port.
