Nsight Eclipse: Failed to connect sshd on <remote-ip>

Hi all,

I am trying to use Nsight for remote application development (https://devblogs.nvidia.com/parallelforall/remote-application-development-nvidia-nsight-eclipse-edition/). I have the following setup:

  • Host: Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit (architecture: x86_64)
  • Target: Jetson TX1 board with 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04 (architecture: aarch64)
  • The host (IP: and the target (IP: are connected to the same wireless network

I’m following the instructions in the blog post above, but get stuck while adding a remote connection on the host. I go to my project properties and under Build -> Target Systems, select ‘Manage’. I add details for my Target system as shown below:


Then when I click on ‘Browse’ for the Target project path, I get the following error:


I am able to ssh to the Target through a terminal as follows:


I’ve looked at similar problems online and tried their suggestions, but haven’t been able to resolve it.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Since this question pertains to software development for the TX1 (via cross-compilation?) you may get better / faster help in the subforum dedicated to TX1: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/board/164/jetson-tx1/ . It seems to be quite active.

Hi njuffa,

Thanks for pointing that out. I’ll post it in that subforum.
