Using the Emulator with a Proxy

If your emulator must access the Internet through a proxy server, you can use the -http-proxy <proxy> option when starting the emulator, to set up the appropriate redirection. In this case, you specify proxy information in <proxy> in one of these formats:




The -http-proxy option forces the emulator to use the specified HTTP/HTTPS proxy for all outgoing TCP connections. Redirection for UDP is not currently supported.

Alternatively, you can define the environment variable http_proxy to the value you want to use for <proxy>. In this case, you do not need to specify a value for <proxy> in the -http-proxy command — the emulator checks the value of the http_proxy environment variable at startup and uses its value automatically, if defined.

You can use the -verbose-proxy option to diagnose proxy connection problems.
