Description softlion 2015-12-01 14:06:04 UTC
When the IP of a laptop with Visual Studio changes or if the laptop goes to sleep, xamarin mac services stop and visual studio disconnects from the mac build host.

The IP may change id the laptop switches between wifi and ethernet networks.
Note that the IP of the mac does not change on the same network.

Expected: VS should not disconnect, reconnection should be flowless. Currently the only remaining mac service must be killed. And after that visual studio crashes.

Some improvements have been made related to SSH and XMA connection and state handling.

Please check if this issue is still present.
