Visual Cobol R4 Development Hub - Project path

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 26 August 2011]

Hello,

I've found a similar problem in the thread Visual COBOL R3 Development Hub - Project Path, and I think I am doing all certainly in the right way.

I can access to the Unix server without problems using the Remote System perspective, but I am not able to create a remote project.

Remote machine's name is "aixlab0102". If I use \\aixlab0102\MNG\DESA\FUENTES\EQBASE\visual_cobol (local path) and /MNG/DESA/FUENTES/EQBASE/visual_cobol (remote path), with a project named "visual_cobol" or any other thing, the Remote Project template says "The remote location does not match the directory on the local path". I tried to use a unit mapped to \\aixlab0102, but with the same result.

Any help, please?

NOTE: We are using NFS, not Samba. Our provider told us that it works the same way.

Hello voyager,
Unfortunately, for Visual Cobol for Eclipse, only smb is supported as a network file sharing protocol, even on Visual Cobol for Eclipse on Red Hat or Suse, Linux compiling on Visual Cobol Devhub on Linux/Unix systems such as AIX, which is your use case.

Unfortunately, this will cause a lot of inconvenience to us, because IBM does not give support to this product.

Are you planning to use NFS in a near future?
