I'm not using netbeans as the debug client, only emacs/geben and the commandline debugclient which comes bundled with xdebug. Also, from the docs for the xdebug settings, it's not clear what to set idekey to, or how it's used. I tried changing this to "session" or "debugclient", I still can't get the server to connect.

Hi Steven. xdebug provided "debugclient" doesn't seem to provide a way
to set the idekey on the command line. In either case, setting the value
in the ini file to match the value sent in the cookie didn't help.

I meant to say that I set it to the value of $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] -
and this too didn't help. I'm not sure why you say this should be done?
It goes against what's mentioned in the xdebug docs, which asks to set
xdebug.remote_host to the ip/name of the host on which the debugger
client is running.

Any other ideas? Is there a way to make xdebug output more debug
