I investigated another connect bug today, and while outwardly the issues seem very different, I think they are actually the same problem. I am afraid that what you are attempting to do is impossible with VS 2012, but we will attempt to address this in the next version of Visual Studio. The problem is that the remote debugger uses a communication technology that, by default, will attempt to validate the messages sent to the remote debugger are actually intended for it. The port forwarding that you are attempting to do will be blocked by this code. For the next version of Visual Studio, we expect to disable this check.

For Visual Studio 2012, you will need to find a way to make this work without port forwarding. All the various home routers that we have tested are able to exchange packets between the wireless and wired subnets without port forwarding. So hopefully this is possible on your router as well.

Again, sorry for the delay and for the issue.

Sorry for the long delay and I am not sure if you are still interested in investigating this. Are you still able to reproduce the problem? If so, from that error message, it sounds like you put the remote debugger into ‘no authentication’ mode. Did you also configure your project for no authentication mode?
