1) Open the "Connect to a Xamarin.iOS Build Host" window with Options/Xamarin/iOS Settings/Configure, or by creating a situation where iOS for VS needs to re-connect to the Mac build host
2) Click on a server, connection detection process starts
3) Wait for server detection to finish, observe that Status has changed to "Ready"
4) Observe that the "Connect" button is still disabled
At this point, if I close the window and re-open it, the top server (my default choice and a working server) is selected and the Connect button is now enabled.
Double-clicking on the server after it is detected as "Ready" is also a workaround.
