I heard that you can run linux_server on the linux server you wish to debug remotely, but I only see references to Windows on the IDA site. Can we use OS X to remote debug a linux program with IDA? If so, how?

  • You are running the native IDA version for OSX? Or the Windows version in WINE?

Your choice of client build for remote debugging shouldn't matter. Just run the remote server and configure your client to connect to it.

  • Thanks for the answer! Do you have OS X? If so, could you provide the basic steps?
