Port Forwarding​

For the extension to work correctly, it is necessary to have the following ports accessible between your machine and the development board:

  • 22 (Dev Board SSH Connection)
  • 2375 (Docker API)
  • 5002 (Local Docker Registry)
  • 2222 (Container SSH Connection)

These are the most common ports used by the extension, but other ports may be required depending on the template used to create a project. Check the templates repository for more information.

If you are getting the following error message when trying to remote deploy/debug a project:


The issue may not be exactly in SSH, as the message suggests. But it could be that some task in the flow failed, which led to not having the container deployed and running on the target. So, there is no SSH target to connect.
