Remote Compiler authentication does not work

  • Is anyone able to use the remote compiler using Qt SDK's QtCreator?

    I can't use it because the Remote Compiler authentication don't seem to work anymore. During this summer I have not managed to use Remote Compiler ay all. Authentication has always failed. It did work earlier, remote compiler did work perfectly. Thif problem is REALLY annoying. I'm a Linux user and I want to build Qt apps for the Symbian, this means that I have to use remote compiler. I can't build anything now, bevause remote compiler authentication dpn't work! This is really driving me mad, because I had to halt my projects. I have even uninstalled and re-instakked the Qt SDK, but it dud not help.

    It seems that authentication problems started when Nokia changed to single account system. You now login to Nokia Developer site usign your Nokia account. There is no separate Nokia developer accounts anymore.
    It looks like that change in Nokia's login system did break the Remote Compiler authentication.

    So can anyone verify this, or is it just me who can't authenticate for some weird reason?

    Here is how to reproduce the problem

    1. Make sure that Ewmote Compiler support is installed in your Qt SDK

    2. Go to QtCreator's Options:
      Tools -> Options -> Build & Run -> Remote Compiler

    3. Enter your username

    4. Click the Authenticate-button

    5. Enter your password

    6. Itlooks like authentication works, BUT.

    7. Close the QtCreator's Options window by clicking applu an Ok buttons.

    8. Re-open the Options window

    9. Go to the remote compiler settings again

    10. Now you sgould see that you are NOT authenticated

    11. If you go to qtCreator's project-settings you also see that you are NOT authenticated to remote compiler, and you can't use it for building apps...
