Remote Debugging with WinDBG

This is not really a tutorial but rather a quick summary of how to do this so I can find this information quickly in the future:

On the "debugging server" (the PC with the problem)
  1. Start WinDBG
  2. Type .server npipe:pipe=pipename
On the "debugging client" (the one you're sitting at)
  1. Start WinDBG
  2. Go to File>Connect to Remote Session
  3. For Connection String enter npipe:server=Server, pipe=PipeName [,password=Password] where Server is the hostname/IP and PipeName is the name that the server chose. The password section is optional.
