IntelliJ Debug on WSL Windows

Steps, I've taken to debug apps on WSL.

#1 Note the network type you are connected to

I was working on my home network, so I marked it as private network.

Windows Wifi Settings

#2 Make sure IntelliJ is allowed on the network type

As I am connected to private network, IntelliJ should be allowed on same as shown below

Windows Defender allow Intellij

#3 Use IP4 for debugging

I used below JVM parameter in the run configurations of Intellij

as shown below

IntelliJ run config

and I was able to connect to the debugger 🤘
