Forwarding ranges of ports to the Android emulator

 Hi! I'm working on a C++ library which uses TCP to estabilish
communications with the LAN. I've been able to use it without problems
on a real device with Android, but I'm not able to use it on the
emulator. I suppose it is because the emulator doesn't have access to
my LAN.

I read the documentation, and, as far as I can understand, it is
necessary to forwards ports for incoming connections with the redir
command. Unfortunately my library uses many different ports randomly,
jumping from one to the other as threads are spawned. So, would it be
possible to forward entire ranges of ports instead of single ports?

Thanks for any advice!

 It's amazing that this is a problem for alot of people out there but
there doesn't seem to be a resolution.

I am experiencing the same trying to write a simple FTP app, as part
of a larger app.

I can connect to an FTP server and perform cwd etc but as soon as I do
anything that requires an inbound connection to transfer data (list)
then it fails and i get an unexpted disconnect from the server.  very

Have you managed to work this one out yet?

Can anyone out there help!?

 Unfortunately no. No news. I'm still not able to work with
applications which uses extensively the network with the emulator. I
think this is really a limitation.

2. Google should clearly express their marketing strategy regarding Android Market


thanks for some nice idioms (right of the bat was really new for me as I'm
not native speaker ;-)).

There is on thing that I don't understand and it is: why Google clearly does
not say "We created Android as one big billboard site". It is also strategy
(I don't like it, but my opinion is not important).  People that like ads
(both users and developers) would know what are the rules and can live with
it. I (and maybe some others) will go to different OS and there is no
problem. I like AdSense on web pages but I can't bide it in mobile apps as
many of them have ads without context and on place where it is annoying.
Also profit from mobile ads is really poor.

But current situation when only official expression is *We're working hard
to add more countries, so please stay tuned! *at the page ( is
definitely not credible for me.

I'm losing hope that there is a chance to get at least initial investment to
developer phone and android market fee back and I feel scammed.
