I'm trying to create android apps which are able to send data through wifi connection to my laptop Apache Server and MySQL database. I use the samsung galaxy tab 10.1 as my mobile device. and the protocol i used is HttpGet or HttpPost. And i use XAMPP( with Apache& SQL) to do the server and process the php. But, since android cannot detect adhoc network from laptop, I use Virtual Router ( for windows 7) to create virtual access point and make the tablet able connect to my laptop. But the problem is:
in my apps (client-android), where the httpget or httppost to which url? localhost in my laptop- 127.0.0.1 or localhost in android 10.0.0.1 or the ip address of the virtual router?
If I want access from android to the localhost(laptop-Apache) to call the php to run? which port? which ip address /url that I need to put in android apps(httpget)? and do I need to modify anything in httpconfig for XAMPP?
