Connecting to localhost from phone to upload forms or download data

Hi

Thanks for the earlier reply. I have been using the google app site but want
the flexibility of using the localhost instance.

Sorry I don't know this already, but do I need to connect the phone via the
usb cable, or not? Then do I need to do anything other than enter the IP
address on the phone to upload the form from the localhost?

Will the firewall prevent access? I need a step by step idiot's guide.

I didn't see instructions for this on the website....

if you are going from the emulator, localhost is at 10.0.2.2. if you
are going from a device, then it's your localhost's external ip.

What URL did you use to access the local server version?

Hi,

I'm trying to change Collect's (v1.1.7) URL to my copy of Aggregate,
so I can upload my form, but in Collect's main menu I don't have a
"Menu" button (or any other option that will take me to server
preferences). The only options I have in the main menu are: start new
form, continue saved form, send finished forms, and manage forms. How
do I get to server preferences??

Thanks for your help!
Anika

you don't need to use the usb cable. you don't need anything but the
address of the server you are trying to connect to.

what your firewall will do depends on your setup. for that reason, we
can't provide step-by-step instructions. assuming your computer and
physical phone are on the same network, then you only need to open
port 8080 on the firewall on your computer. you'll also need to figure
out the ip of your computer and give that to the phone.

a lot of these issues is why we recommend using the google app engine option.
