As seen in the attached, Visual Studio sees the remote Mac as connected.
Yet when I build, it fails because it can't connect.
Its frustrating when half the tools contradict the other half.
This Xamarin.Forms solution has an Android, iOS and UWP project. At the start of each Month I run them all to make sure they are all on-par and happy. So this is not a new solution, nor am I totally unfamiliar with connecting to a remote build Mac.
Neither PC has its firewalls even running.
All the basics like same usernames, ssh and so on have remain the same and untouched for months.
Of course I have already rebooted everything. I'm connecting to the Mac by IP address.
I've run through the troubleshooting page just to make sure I haven't overlooked something.
I really think this is something recent, perhaps in the lastest release. I do have both machines on the same release channel-but that is alpha so I wonder/worry. They are both up to date and report nothing new available.
Anyone else ever see this split behavior where it is connected but can't connect?
