Connecting with Phindows

The IDE lets you connect to a Photon session on a target from a Windows host machine and interact with the remote Photon system as if you were sitting in front of the target machine.
To prepare your target for a Phindows connection:
  1. Open a terminal window and log in as root.
  2. Edit the file /etc/inetd.conf and add the following line (or remove the comment character if the line already exists):
    phrelay stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/phrelay phrelay -x
  3. Save the file and exit the editor.
  4. If it's running, kill the inetd daemon:
    slay inetd
  5. Now restart inetd:

The inetd daemon starts and you can connect to your target using Phindows.

For details about using Phindows, see the Phindows Connectivity topic Starting Phindows in your QNX Software Development Platform documentation set.
