i want to do kernel debugging on my vm from another vm.

My setup is pretty simple,

Debugged - VM: Windows XP SP3 x32 (To be debugged)

Debugger - VM: Windows 7 SP1 x64 (With Windbg installed - the Debugger)

the pipe configuration is pretty simple as well.. both ends should be set as The other end is a virtual machine, and on the XP VM i set the pipe as This end is the server and on the Win7 vm i set This end is the client. Im using Vmware Workstation 10.0.3 btw..

I know i did setup my XP vm correctly because i can debug it from the host easily - configuring The other end is an application and connecting it with Windbg from my host computer (Win7 x64) and its working properly. So i know there is no problem with my Win-XP setup

But doing the same thing from the other vm, nothing happens. I looked through the internet and i even followed tutorials that explained exactly what i already did. I have no idea what i'm missing and i feel pretty helpless so i came asking here.

Anyone got any ideas what is the problem with my setup?


Fixed the problem.. On the windbg client, uncheck the 'Reconnect' and 'Pipe' checkboxes on the COM tab - then it will connect to the debugger.
