Developers can connect from home and use any tool that supports J-Link. J-Link Remote Server has been used for years to debug target systems, thousands of miles away, even behind firewalls. The server allows system bring-up when hardware availability was limited, expensive, or otherwise difficult.
Authenticated access and the encrypted communication tunnel are based on the proven algorithms of emCrypt. The authentication uses challenge-response methods to ensure the password is never visible on the wire. End-to-end encryption of the debug stream ensures that the application can be securely transferred via wire.
The J-Link Remote Server can be used at no cost with any J-Link model, including base models with only USB interface. The software is included in the “J-Link Software and Documentation Package” that comes with every model J-Link or J Trace.
