Re: Can't get GDB to connect to target

I'm running GDB from a BASH shell on a Windows 98 platform. The version and
configuration of GDB is:-

>GNU gdb 4.17-gnupro-98r2
>This GDB was configured as
"--host=i586-pc-cygwin32 --target=mips-tx39-elf".

This version was supplied to me along with the demo board that I'm trying to
connect to. I assume I was given a good working setup. I've also compiled a
version 5 build of GDB which showed a similar problem.

I'm also reasonably sure my monitor is all OK. If I connect to it using  a
terminal emulator, I can stimulate the transmission of GBD protocol packets.

There must be some diagnostics available from GDB somewhere.

I've never used these GNU tools before, so I expect to encounter some very
fundamental problems most likey caused by my errors.

Many thanks.
