Installing and configuring over Ethernet.

Post by dmconsulting » Tue Jun 26, 2012 4:37 pm

I have an Android device running over Ethernet. I was able to install the 330.apk using adb, but I can't seem to connect to the device using the studio. I don't have direct access to the Android UI, but I have a terminal open to the device.

How can I verify the app is started on the device?

Hi,

You've installed the Ranorex Service APK via adb right? Did you start the apk also on the device?
If not Ranorex Studio isn't able to detect the devices.

Also there is missing info in manual,
If you use Emulator, you should configure redirection to port 31000 (not 31001)
1. Connect via telnet 127.0.0.1 5554
2. Type: "redir add tcp:31000:31000"
3. After that search device in Ranorex Studio (choose device on tab, not emulator), using 127.0.0.1 IP address to connect (ranorex service should be started on mob device)

Emulator uses virtual router, so IP which is shown in ranorex service: 10.0.2.15 is not accessible from studio.

Hi,

thank you for sharing your experiences, but basically the mentioned steps are obsolete with the actual version of Ranorex.
