It seems, there is a problem with client's IP address(es) detection by PhpStorm (debug_host param).
I have several Etherenet interfaces on my Win7 machine (LAN, VirtualBox adapter, VPN). When trying to auto-configurate Zend Debug Toolbar for FireFix it works, but phpStorm sends incorrect IP. Technically it's not incorrect, it's just first IP phpStorm has found. However, I haven't found a way to adjust/override it somewhere in PhpStorm settings. For the FireFox toolbar, I can simply enter correct IP in the manual settings of the toolbar, but the same incorrect IP is sent to remote phpUnit runner, when trying to debug a unit test on a remote server. I was unable to find a workaround for that.
Here is how it looks like:

Does someone know if it's possible to adjust somewhere or should I file a ticket to fix that?
Some more things noticed when trying to setup phpUnit on remote server:
- "Use XML configuration file" setting inside Run Configurations -> Defaults -> PHPUnit on Server is NOT automatically copied to newly created run configurations (when I right-click a folder or file with tests). This results in tests bootstrapping incorrectly and not working. When, I manually adjust this setting for automatically created Run configuration - it works.
- There is no option to disable automatic upload of test files to the server. I have a project configured for automatic deployment to the server through a mapped drive with "Upload changes on save turned on", so reuploading several hundreds of test files makes no sense at all and just takes time. Is there a way to disable it?
- I was unable to figure out how to configure remote unit testing to run tests from a different base directory, corresponding to selected directory. Normally the tests are located in different directory, mirroring the structure of the actual classes you are testing, such as:
So, while working in Class.php you need to run a corresonding test. Is there a way to configure PhpStorm to run tests accordingly? Probably some variable magic in paths (like the one used in External Tools) may help... Another option would be adjust _intellij_phpunit_launcher.php. What do you suggest?
P.S. All of the above was tested/noticed in PhpStorm 2.3.1 PS-107.581 running on Win7 64bit
