6. Communicating with the QNX Neutrino RTOS

Your target system must be able to respond to requests from the development environment. To make this possible, the target must be running the qconn program. If you didn't see it earlier in the output of pidin, you can start qconn from the console:

qconn &

To access your target system from the IDE, you have to create a target project. Open the System Information perspective: in the Window menu, select Open Perspective > QNX System Information. In the empty Target Navigator view, press the right mouse button and select New QNX Target... from the context menu:

Add New Target

If you wish, you can uncheck Same as hostname and provide a name for your target system. Enter its IP address in the corresponding field:

Target configuration

Click Finish, and then select your new target in the Target Navigator. You will now see a list of all the processes in your QNX Neutrino RTOS system. The views (the tabs at the top) provide other information to you. You can find even more useful views in the Window menu under Show View.
