The qconn daemon is a server that runs on a target system and handles all incoming requests from our IDE.

The qconn server spawns pdebug for debugging requests, profiles applications, gathers system information, and so on.

Like pdebug, qconn is inherently insecure and is meant for development systems. Unlike for pdebug, we plan to give it a security model with some form of authentication. This will let you leave qconn on production machines in the field to provide services such as remote upgrades and fault correction.
