Android Emulator Proxy Settings


Internet browsing in android emulator required no configuration if your host operating system is out of proxy. But if you are behind the proxy you must set android emulator proxy settings properly. An incorrect configuration hampers your internet browsing.

There are many ways to setup android emulator proxy settings. Here I am going to mention some of the easiest ways:

Android Emulator Proxy Settings - Edit Access Point

Android Emulator Proxy Settings – Edit Access Point

Manual Configuration:

01. Go to Home Screen

02. Click on Menu

03. Click on Settings

04. In Wireless & Networks category, click More…

05. Click Mobile Networks

06. Click Access Point Names

07. Click TelKila

08. Enter Proxy and Port

09. Enter Username and Password if required


From Command Line:

01. Run the command console by Start >> Run >>Type cmd>> Press Enter

02. Navigate to tools folder of android SDK installation. In my case it is D:\android-development\android-sdk-windows\tools

03. Run the command after customize for yourself. “emulator -avd {avd-name| in my case DroidX} -http-proxy {http-proxy address:port|in my case}”

04. In my case the full command was: “emulator -avd DroidX -http-proxy”


Your proxy was set successfully. Just open browser, pour an URL to it and continue browsing.


Please Note: I have used Android Emulator 4.0.3 to test this android emulator proxy settings process.

    Dear @vishal upadhyay

    Not all network use proxy. If your network use proxy, you will find them on Internet Explorer.

    Go to Tools >> Internet Options >> Connections >> Lan Settings

    Here you will find Proxy Server & Port Information

    Hi, I am trying to set the proxy to localhost:8080 using the command prompt method. But it says unable to authenticate using the given proxy. There is a proxy running on my localhost and it is working fine when I use a browser like IE. There is no username and password for the proxy running on my system. Please help…

    You will find your proxy setting on Internet Explorer. Just go to Tools >> Internet Options >> Connections >> LAN Settings. You will find “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings” dialog box. Proxy Server region of this dialog box, you will find your working proxy server address and port.

    Hi Rahinur,

    I am pretty much new to Android Development and have got first task to make a client over .NET WCF. I am working on ADT (Build: v21.0.0-531062). I understand from so many blogs that localhost has to be replaced with So my http://localhost:8081/Service1.svc url looks like now. But still I am facing following exception:

    01-01 15:21:11.374: W/System.err(2633): org.apache.http.conn.HttpHostConnectException: Connection to refused

    I even tried with the router ip, still facing the same exception. Any solution to this will be great helpful and highly appriciated.
