Debugging Linux on Windows with Visual Studio 2019

Earlier in this chapter, we created a worker that could run as a worker service, and we ran it through the Remote extension in Visual Studio Code. There are, however, cases where you either cannot do everything you need through Visual Studio Code, or where the Linux host is not even running on the same machine that you will debug from.

This doesn't prevent you from debugging the code running in Linux, but there are an extra couple of hoops to jump through. We will look at using Visual Studio 2019 and connecting over SSH, which is a common protocol for remote connections to a Linux system.

We can still test using WSL2, so in this case we will still connect to our local machine. It is possible to do a similar setup for other Linux distributions. The following instructions are for enabling SSH on the Ubuntu 20.04 that we have already set up:

  1. Enable the SSH serve by running the following code:

    sudo apt-get install openssh...
