A method of remote debugging comprises a first computer system that communicates with a second computer using a network connection. The first computer system controls the remote debugging and comprises a first operating system. The second computer system comprises a second operating system and software being tested. User input, in the form of debug commands, is received using a remote debugger in the first computer system to control the remote debugging session. The remote debugger translates a debug command into messages that are sent from the first computer system to the second computer system. The messages correspond to tasks that the target computer system performs to complete the debug command. During debugging, the target computer system transitions between polling or stopped mode and interrupt-driven mode by transitioning both the target operating system and network hardware in the target computer system that interfaces with the network.
