I want to access an Eccho server in localhost.

Here is the Echo server in localhost

import java.util.Scanner;

public class EchoServer
        public static void main(String[] args)
                        ServerSocket s = new ServerSocket(8189);
                        Socket incoming = s.accept();

                                InputStream inStream   = 
                                OutputStream outStream = 
                                Scanner in = new Scanner(inStream);
                                PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(outStream, 
                                out.println("Hello! Enter BYE to exit");

                                boolean done = false;

                                while(!done && in.hasNextLine())
                                        String line = in.nextLine();
                                        out.println("Echo: "+ line);
                                                done = true;


                catch(IOException e)


I have a client, on the emulatot that tries to connect to this server.
I use to connect to localhost, but it doesn't work.

Socket s = new Socket("", 8189);

Can anybody explain why this happen,

have you tried to forward/redirect ports?
Maybe that is what you are missing.

2. Google blocking phones with specific firmware from the market?

I've been following the hack job some in the G1 community have been
doing with firmware that was obtained from the soon to be released HTC
Saphire phone.  It seems that people who have firmware version 1.5 on
their phones are being blocked from the market and I was wondering if
anyone knows or has heard anything about this?

If this is the case, is there a reason why?  One of the big reasons I
held out for the G1 was to be able to do things like hack the firmware
or add functionality that was not originally there and it would be a
shame if google or some other entity is indeed blocking certain phones
from the market

For those unaware of this firmware, here is the link

Any input regarding this would be appreciated.
