Eclipse Remote Debugging:

Failed to connect to remote VM. Connection timed out


The above error is the most frequently encountered by Developers working with different eclipse version.
It is almost too irritating all to get this error and spend a substantial portion of the day debugging it.

Some things to try to get past this error:

1. First check the network connection settings ( Assuming you can ping to the remote machine successfully )

Go to Window -> Preferences -> General -> Network Connections, and check if there is any proxy set here, change the 'Active Provider' to be 'Direct' and try again

For more see the below link:

2. Increase the Debug timeout paramters:

3. Check the remote server Debug settings:
My Java debug options configured on the remote server:

set "JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8788,server=y,suspend=n"

where 8788 is the port to connect to for remote debugging.

This port, 8788 must be provided in the ecliipse settings

See this link for how to add the remote server name and remote server debug port:
