How to access your virtual host services in VirtualBox with Android emulator.

purpose

I built local development with Vagrant. I can browse http://text.example.com with Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari in MacOS.

But I want to browse test application running in VirtualBox by Android emulator.

my enviroments

  • MacOSX 10.8
  • nginx/1.4.4
  • VirutualBox 4.2.10
  • Genymotion 2.0.3

edit emulator hosts file

adb pull /system/etc/hosts /tmp/hosts
echo "192.168.57.1 test.example.com" >> /tmp/hosts
adb remount
adb push /tmp/hosts /system/etc

edit local hosts file

sudo echo "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx test.example.com >> /etc/hosts

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is my VirtualBox IP address.

edit proxy server conf file.

here is example.

% cat /usr/local/etc/nginx/text.proxy.conf 
worker_processes  1;  

events {
    worker_connections  1024;
}

http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    sendfile        on; 
    keepalive_timeout  65; 

    server {
        listen       80;
        server_name  test.example.com;

        location / { 
            proxy_pass http://test.example.com;
        }   
    } 
}

start nginx.

sudo nginx -c /usr/local/etc/nginx/test.proxy.conf -s reload 

enjoy!!
