  5. Change the following configuration settings, as required:

    Remote Connection

    Chooses either Serial or Serial/Parallel depending on the connections. For Ethernet, enter either an IP address or the hostname of the target board.


    Ensures reliable transmission by sending heartbeat messages. If not enabled, there is a danger that the host and the target can get into a deadlock situation, with both waiting for a packet.


    Allows the correct serial and parallel devices to be chosen for the debug connection.

    Serial Line Speed

    Selects the Baud rate used to transmit data along the serial line.

    Channel Viewers

    Channel viewers are not supported by the ARM Debugger for UNIX (ADU).

    In the ARM Debugger for Windows (ADW) you can enable or disable the selected channel viewer DLL. See ThumbCV channel viewer for more information.

    Click the Add... button to add a channel viewer DLL to the displayed list.

    Click the Remove... button to remove the currently selected channel viewer DLL from the displayed list.
