Well in this case the server is not managed from within QtCreator but it would 
be nice if it would be that way. So you have to start openocd yourself.

I have the suspicion that you are using a different project than the one i 
tested. I used qmake and qbs based builds for testing i am not sure if other 
build systems work but if you have some project for me to test i could take a 
look. From looking at the source i am pretty sure that cmake does not work 
where the reason lies within the cmake plugin of qtcreator.

Best regards
