When the target of the package is
ipa-debug-interpreter, the connection options can be used to specify whether the app will attempt to connect to a remote debugger (typically used for wifi debugging) or listen for an incoming connection from a remote debugger (typically used for USB debugging). Use the
-connect option to connect to a debugger; use the
-listen option to accept a connection from a debugger over a USB connection. These options are mutually exclusive; that is, you cannot use them together.
-connect option uses the following syntax:
If present, the app will attempt to connect to a remote debugger.
A string identifying the computer running the Flash debugging tool FDB. If not specified, the app will attempt to connect to a debugger running on the computer on which the package is created. The host string can be a fully qualified computer domain name:
machinename.subgroup.example.com, or an IP address:
192.168.4.122. If the specified (or default) machine cannot be found, then the runtime will display a dialog requesting a valid host name.
-listen option uses the following syntax:
If present, the runtime waits for a connection from a remote debugger.
The port to listen on. By default, the runtime listens on port 7936. For more information on using the
-listen option, see Remote debugging with FDB over USB.
