I've referred the developer site and have implemented the following idea that works fine for two emulator instances running on same machine.
•A is you development machine
•B is your first emulator instance, running on A
•C is your second emulator instance, also running on A
and you want to run a server on B, to which C will connect, here is how you could set it up: 1.Set up the server on B, listening to 10.0.2.15:
2.On B's console, set up a redirection from A:localhost: to B:10.0.2.15:
3.On C, have the client connect to 10.0.2.2:
For example, if you wanted to run an HTTP server, you can select as 80 and as 8080: •B listens on 10.0.2.15:80
•On B's console, issue redir add tcp:8080:80
•C connects to 10.0.2.2:8080
Now for two diffenrent machines I have to make C connect to A's ipaddress:8080. This doesn't work though. What Address should be given in place of 10.0.2.2 for this to work? The IPAddress alone is apparently not sufficient.
I've been stuck with this for abt a week. Any help would be appreciated
If i just use the Ipaddress of the server(with 8080 port) from the client, i get java.net.conectExcperion:Connection Rfused : Connect
