Setting up Redirections through the Emulator Console
Each emulator instance provides a control console the you can connect to, to
issue commands that are specific to that instance. You can use the
redir console command to set up redirections as needed for an
First, determine the console port number for the target emulator instance.
For example, the console port number for the first emulator instance launched is
5554. Next, connect to the console of the target emulator instance, specifying
its console port number, as follows:
telnet localhost 5554
Once connected, use the
redir command to work with redirections.
To add a redirection, use:.
<protocol> is either
<guest-port> sets the
mapping between your own machine and the emulated system, respectively.
For example, the following command sets up a redirection that will handle all
incoming TCP connections to your host (development) machine on 127.0.0.1:5000
and will pass them through to the emulated system's 10.0.2.15:6000.:
redir add tcp:5000:6000
To delete a redirection, you can use the
redir del command. To
list all redirections for a specific instance, you can use
list. For more information about these and other console commands, see
Using the Emulator Console.
Note that port numbers are restricted by your local environment. this typically
means that you cannot use host port numbers under 1024 without special
administrator privileges. Also, you won't be able to set up a redirection for a
host port that is already in use by another process on your machine. In that
redir generates an error message to that effect.
