I'm working on a project that is kept on a shared server (server runs Ubuntu 14.04 LTS; my machine runs OS X 10.10.2). I access the server files via Tramp using a password-secured SSH connection. Whenever I try to use Helm to navigate between files in the project I'm working on, Emacs freezes with the following message in the minibuffer:
Tramp: Opening connection for [username]@[server] using scp...
Emacs is unresponsive after this. A few minutes later, it says the connection was failed:
Tramp: Opening connection for [username]@[host] using scp...failed
It remains unresponsive at this point indefinitely. I need to kill the process or force quit the application so I can reopen it. Backtrace under
lldb doesn't give any useful information, probably because the program isn't really crashing - it's being terminated after becoming unresponsive.
Any idea what might be going on / how to diagnose the issue / what to do to fix it?
