What you are looking for is a DBGp Proxy. The one that I have installed in my network is the ActiveState DBGp Proxy. I was able to get it from:


The proxy is within the PythonRemoteDebugging archive. When you extract that archive there will be a pydbgpproxy binary. You will need to have python installed on the box that will act as the proxy. It does not have to be the same machine as where the php code is running from. When running the binary make sure to specify the ports that you want the proxy to listen for xdebug script connections as well as what port the debug clients will connect on. Example is:

python ./pydbgpproxy -i 9001 -d 9000

That says that clients will connect on port 9001 and the xdebug will connect on port 9000. If you have enough linux knowledge your can setup that command as a service so that it is automatically stopped / started as well as being able to use a "service pydbgpproxy start / stop". I just have the output sent to a file in my /var/log so that I can check if everything is running well from time to time by tailing that log.

If you need more information check out:


It is information about how the proxy is setup but the later parts of the blog are specific to Komodo IDE for the debug client.

I have recently installed xdebug on a ubuntu box, and I´m
successfully connecting to it from a networked Windows box running NetBeans. So
far so good.
Now I want other people to simultaneously connect to xdebug,
but I can´t. I have tried to set multiple IPs on the php.ini files, separating
IPs with commas, spaces, etc), and not succeeded.
I read somewhere on some doc that this might be possible via
proxy, but would like to seek more information or just some guidance on how to
do this – I cannot find a single soul who has done it…
Thank you so much for you attention and time,
Windows Live Messenger. Multitasking at its finest.
