Host-target communications

The IDE supports host-target communications using an IP or a serial connection.

If you have a serial link, you can debug a program, but you need an IP link to use any advanced diagnostic tool integrated into the IDE. To enable IP communications, the target must run the qconn agent, which provides support, such as system profiling information, to IDE components on the host. For serial communications, the target must run the serial driver and pdebug utility.
