[MonoDevelop] Remote debugging support?

Sorry if this is known info, but I've been spending way too much time now
looking for this to no avail.


Is there a way to perform remote debugging with MonoDevelop? Just to be
clear, by this I mean executing in debug mode an EXE on a remote system.


By digging in the MonoDevelop.Debugger.Soft sources, I found a way to enable
CustomSoftDebuggerEngine, which has a proto UI allowing me to specify the IP
address of the target machine by defining MONODEVELOP_SDB_TEST as an
environment variable. All my efforts to get this to work failed miserably,
with the debugger being stuck showing "Waiting for debugger to connect".


Any info on this? What server should run on the debuggee side? Another
instance of MonoDevelop? Monotools-server?


I've tried this both on Windows and Linux.


And I desperately need remote debugging support. I could live with MonoTools
on Windows, but its future is uncertain - I'd rather have an open-source


Thanks in advance,
