By default, the Squish IDE starts and stops
squishserver from the Squish package that the IDE has been configured to use.
In some situations it can be useful — or even necessary — to have the Squish IDE communicate with a different
squishserver; one that has already been started.
For the following setup you will need a Squish package on the computer where the AUT (Application Under Test) is running the "remote" computer), and a Squish package on the computer where the Squish IDE is to be used.
Step 1 - Configuring a remote squishserver¶
By default squishserver only allows connections from
127.0.0.1 / the
To enable remote connections adjust the following entry in
* allows connections from any IP address and host name. Replace this with only desired IP addresses/host names, if required for security reasons.
Step 2 - Starting and stopping squishserver on the remote computer¶
By default the Squish IDE starts and stops
squishserver as necessary. If you configure the Squish IDE to use a different
squishserver, then you must take responsibility for starting this
squishserver before starting the Squish IDE, and for stopping it once it is no longer needed.
Step 3 - Configuring a remote squishserver in the Squish IDE¶
Configure the Squish IDE to use the running squishserver at
Uncheck "Start local Squish server automatically"
Enter IP address or computer name and port number (default is 4322) of the remote
