IMX6ULEVK remote debug with eclipse

I am new to linux development. So I managed to create a custom linux and a toolchain with yocto and build a "hello world" on eclipse but I can't remote debug it. On eclipse, I tried debugging with gdbserver running on the target but it is way too slow. Then, I tried the direct remote debugger plugin from eclipse marketplace that get stuck at 57% and returns  the error "Could not start gdb on the remote host by ssh" when canceling. GDB is correctly installed on the target and I can launch it in a ssh terminal.


My configuration :

Eclipse luna for linux

Ubuntu 16.04 running inside virtualbox on Windows 7


Any suggestion ? Is eclipse the best tool to develop linux applications on IMX6UL ?
