    Is it possible to use the Remote Debugger Desktop beyond the local network?
    I am using it without any problem on the local network but it appears to be impossible to with a remote computer.

    I've done this through a VPN.

    I have done it with the RB Remote Debugger so I imagine it will work with the Xojo Remote Debugger.
    If you cannot get it working it is probably a network related issue. The Remote Debugger actually connects back to the IDE (cannot remember if it is the same port you configure in the IDE) so you will need to setup a rule on your local network’s firewall to route incoming connections on the port back to your computer.

    I'm remote debugging a Windows instance I have in Azure from my MacBook Pro. Works better than I expected, once I got it set up.

    @Kevin G The Remote Debugger actually connects back to the IDE (cannot remember if it is the same port you configure in the IDE) so you will need to setup a rule on your local network’s firewall to route incoming connections on the port back to your computer.

    I have ports 44553 and 13897 forwarded through my local firewall to the system running Xojo (with corresponding firewall rules in Azure to let connections destined for those ports out). Finding out that port 13897 is needed was like finding a needle in a haystack...it's not in the documentation.
