Description Miha Markic 2017-09-26 11:23:23 UTC
When a manual connection to Mac fails (i.e. user not logged in on mac)

no error is shown.
Instead one has to open log files and browse through them to understand why the connection fails.

Show the failure reason or at least relevant log lines.

This issue was fixed as part of the Remote Server selector dialog improvements, and these changes will be released on Visual Studio 15.5.

Thanks for reporting!
