Apologies if this is some sort of user error : I'm new to Webstorm, although not new to IDEs and debugging!
Anyway, trying to debug a simple Node.js application remotely. Node is running on an Ubuntu machine, WS is running on my Windows10 desktop.
So far so good...I can start node with remote debugging enabled and I can get WS to connect to it.
Basic things like hitting breakpoints work. However...after a while I began to realize that all is not well.
Webstorm would hang on various things (e.g. fetching script source code from the debug target, inspecting a variable when stopped in a breakpoint).
I did some poking into what might be going on and ended up tracing the traffic between V8 and WS on port 5858.
What I see there leads me to suspect that Webstorm is broken in some respect -- I see requests from it to V8 (e.g. to fetch the script source), then I see V8 send the response, however WS just spins forever never displaying the file.
I guess my first question should be : is remote debugging expected to work between WS 10.0.4 and Node v0.12.7?
Also, is there some way to get a debug log from Webstorm that might shed some light on what's going on? It is a little tight-lipped on what it is up to (or what it thinks it is up to) in a remote debugging session.
I'm scratching my head as to what could be causing this in my environment.
