Hi all,

The readme.md file on GitHub for the SAS Extension for Visual Studio Code indicates there ability to run code while connecting to remote SAS 9.4 server. Newly added feature beyond connecting and running code on SAS Viya.

 

Are there any detailed/video instruction on how to do that?

Has any one been able to connect and run code on SAS 9.4 server from VS Code and willing to share the steps?

 

This is what I have tried so far, and I'm still getting Errors!

  1. Created public & private ssh keys, and I'm able to connect to my Remote Server host without password
  2. Defined Windows Environment variable SSH_AUTH_SOCK=22
  3. Defined Windows Environment variable DISPLAY=localhost0:0  

 When trying to connect to my SAS 9.4 server, I'm getting this error

"Invalid cygwin unix socket path"!!

And I don't see anywhere in the SAS Extension settings anything about Cygwin!? 

What am I missing?

 

Thanks in advance

Please take a look and attempt your setup and connection again. If you continue to have issues, please reply to this thread and we will continue to investigate your errors.
