Remote Host connections not working after updating to 2021.2, How to debug?


All of my servers use password authentication with a dual factor authentication prompt. After updating to 2021.2, this has stopped connecting. Is there any way to debug the connection, see what messages are being sent and received so I can try to get this critical functionality working?

Oddly, in the connection settings, "Test connection" works fine. Its just Remote Host and Start SSH Session that fail. It appears to be the PIN that is being sent incorrectly. But without some way to view what is being sent, I can't be sure.

Hi there,

You can enable extra logging by adding httpclient.wire.header to the Help | Diagnostic Tools | Debug Log Settings dialog. It will add dumps of HTTP headers to the idea.log, including your base64-encoded credentials sent in the "Authorization" header.
