Description Thomas Preisler 2011-07-07 17:28:01 UTC
From CR 7063511:

The validator for the BaseDirectory in the AddNewToolCollection for <remotehost>
dialog doesn't accept anything I type in. 

When I add a new Toolchain The BaseDirectory field starts out empty 
and the error is "Base Directory is not set".
I paste a known accessible path w/o soft links:
	/shared/<see orig. CR>/solstudio12.2/bin
The error message now says Directory not exist or is not available.
	BTW, the first 'is' should be a 'does'.

I trim it down to, say, /shared/dp ...
Still "... is not exist .."
I click on Browse and it starts at / but doesn't show anything underneath it.

I change the text to / see if Browse works from there and ah! I get an
authenticatiopn type dialog. If I cancel that dialog the error changes to
"Host not connected".

It took me way too long to figure why these paths aren't being accepted.
For one thing one mental leap I had to make was that the paths are being seen
from the point of view of the remote machine (using a remote file browser I presume).

A less luckier/persistent user might give up in frustration for not being
able to setup their remote toolchain. Other than cancelling the dialog and
connecting first the only way to get the host connection to happen automatically
is to put "/" into the BaseDirectory field and press enter.

In fact it is gone after recent changes in remote file system.
However there is an ugly typo ("directory is not exist" instead of "does not"), which, I strongly believe, should be fixed.
