Steps to reproduce this issue:
[Condition: When license is activated and user is logged in]
1. Open VS.
2. Create iOS application.
3. Connect to Mac Server.
4. Observe that VS connected to Mac server properly.
5. Remove internet connection from Mac server.
6. create or open application on VS.

Actual result:  'CONNECT_TO_BUILD_HOST' dialog popup does not appears after
open or create application if connected Mac server is unavailable. However,
when user click 'Start' button or Configure button under iOS Settings, 
'CONNECT_TO_BUILD_HOST' dialog displayed properly.

Expected result:  'CONNECT_TO_BUILD_HOST' dialog should appear after open or
create an application if connected Mac server is unreachable.

Environment details:
iOS for VS 1.3.211
VS 2012/2010
Xamarin.iOS 6.3.7-185
Mono 3.1.1-2

This issue is duplicate of Bug 9792 and was verified with MTVS 1.2.121 now I have checked it using MTVS 1.2.121 and latest Xamarin.iOS 6.3.7-185 and Mono 3.1.1-2 and getting same issue on this as well. I am not able to diagnose this issue where the problem is?

Regression Issue:
REGRESSION: This was verified with MTVS 1.2.121

I think that since this behavior mirrors the behavior outlined in https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9792#c3 we should be ok with this expected behavior. The dialog should appear when you deploy to device (not just on build).

Please update the test cases with this new expected behavior.

As per comment#1 we have updated the test case.
