Remote Debugging

The Net Express animserv utility used for debugging programs remotely has been replaced by cobdebugremote (or cobdebugremote64 when debugging 64-bit processes) in Enterprise Developer.

To debug locally-developed programs on a remote machine you must start cobdebugremote (or cobdebugremote64 when debugging 64-bit processes) before communication can be established. See the Enterprise Developer help for more information on cobdebugremote.

To debug remotely-developed programs on a remote machine:

  • You use a local Enterprise Developer installation to develop remote projects on a remote UNIX machine that has Micro Focus Enterprise Developer UNIX Components installed.

  • To debug a COBOL project, the project must be compiled for debugging and you need to create a debug configuration.

For more information, see the section on Remote Debugging in your product help.
