Connecting from emulator to staging server
Is it possible to test a mobile web app located in a staging server (http://networkmachine/mobapp/foo.aspx)
from my emulator in my development machine?

My PDA does not have a wireless conn; and, i just have not figured out how
to share the internet connection, of my workstation, with the emulators or
if this is even possible. I can test the app from a regular explorer window
but i would prefer to test the look and feel of the real thing thru emulation.

Any tricks?

Hi Francisco,

Thank you for your post.

If you are using the emulators of Visual Studio 2005, you can refer to
following articles on how to enable and troubleshooting emulators' internet

#Visual Studio 2005 Device Emulator and Internet Connectivity

#Connectivity Troubleshooting (Devices)

Hope this helps. Please feel free to post here if anything is unclear.
