What I have
I have a Tomcat 7.0 server running on my Windows 7 PC and I have a dial up internet connection. IP I get on whatismyip is
117.xxx.xxx.xxx. I want to use this machine to test my Android Application.
I access the servlets on my Apache Tomcat 7 via Android Emulator through
I want to access the Server via my real Android Device.
What I did
- I'm using No-IP Free to covert my dynamic IP (I have a dial-up connection) to a static IP.
- I changed the Inbound Rules for port 8084 on my Windows 7 firewall, but it did not work.
As suggested by @slhck I have been able to access my router and did Advanced Setup » NAT » Virtual Server Setup and on this screen,
I added TCP, external and internal port both 8084, internal server set to
10.0.2.2. The "Service Name" - "Tomcat".
