VS 2013 with Update 2 can't find Xamarin Build host

DmitryWontsayDmitryWontsay USMember

Hello, I updated Xamarin studio at mac to 3.0 and vs studio 2013 with update 2 to xamarin 3.0, after that I can't connect with mac build host, it shows Searching netwoks for build hosts...infinitely. Maybe reason also was in that I disabled proxy settings in my window machine, but when I do it enabled nothing changed. Also it doen't write any logs in \AppData\Local\Xamarin\Log\12.0, and in mac in Library/Logs/Xamarin/MonoTouchVS/mtbserver.log. What can I do?

    Could always try restarting the Bonjour Service and re-pairing the computer.

    As JonDouglas say, try unpairing the computer from the build host, restarting the mac and then repairing.

    I had to do this myself when I installed Xamarin 3.0 in VS 2013, after that everything worked as expected.

    Please let me know if you are still having issues.
