I'm running the latest version of the Blackberry emulator for a 9800 on Windows XP, I've started the MDS service and I can browse web pages on the internet with the emulator like Google, Yahoo, etc.
The problem is that I can't access the Apache server I have hosting a localhost website.
I run the Blackberry emulator and launch the Browser then try to connect to http: // localhost and get the error message:
"Not authorized to access localhost:80"
If I try to access the same URL using a normal web browser the hello.html page comes up fine.
I have seen other posts on this site that indicate you can try the IP address. This didn't work.
I've also seen a post that said if you go to the MDS service's Tomcat application you can see the name it thinks the localhost is called. I tried this by connecting to the IP address of my workstation at port 8080. This worked to display the MDS Connection Service panel and showed the name of the MDS-CD URL as http : // workstationname.mydomain.local. I tried accessing http : // workstationname.mydomain.local / hello.html and got the following error popup message in the emulator:
"This is a Wi-Fi service. Please ensure your device has an active Wi-Fi connection and try again"
after reviewing some emulators i encountered by accident with
the best testing tool of all.
it's called the perfectomobile handset cloud and you can really operate the phone keys, touch-screen, or QWERTY keyboard to control the device, install
applications on the device and verify that your
application or service works properly and displays correctly on the
