Summary0001412: Variable remote port
DescriptionIs it possible to add support for a variable remote port, e.g. sent via a GET variable XDEBUG_REMOTE_PORT=DDDD?
The reason is simple. If I am connected to more than one server through SSH at the same time, which are behind a firewall, I cannot tunnel simultaneously one and the same port to each server through SSH.
TagsNo tags attached.
Operating System
PHP Version5.1.0

I am not going to add this. Similarly to not having the remote host configurable through the web interface, adding this would open up hosts with Xdebug running to make random connections to other ports on your (firewall) host.

Instead, Xdebug already provides functionality for this with the help of a DBGp proxy. I have written how this works at, and PhpStorm allows for DBGp proxies to be used too.
