Remote development via build machine


Hello there,

I am trying to figure out whether its possible to setup CLion with SSH to do development via additional build machine. Normally via “Remote Host” Toolchain configuration, I am able to build and debug on the target. For the that would be an ARM Linux machine and I am working from a Windows host:

This is slow, because the target is low resource. What would be better is to cross compile on the host side, but I would need a Linux host to avoid different kind of issues. So I could install CLion on a linux host, but I prefer to develop on Windows. So I was wondering whether such a config would work (and if yes, how to configure it):

I would appreciate all help and feedback!
