needs to access the same API

F Dhcdgb 60 Reputation points

I have a API.

I am developing a MAUI Android app that needs to access the same API but I can't make it work.

HttpClient client = new();

Uri baseurl = new Uri("http://localhost:8086/api/Login/");

Any ideas how to solve this or any way around or some Emulator config?

    Emulated device can't detect your development machine or other emulator instances on the network. It detects only that it is connected through ethernet to a router or firewall. The virtual router for each instance manages the 10.0.2/24 network address space. All addresses managed by the router are in the form of 10.0.2.xx, where xx is a number. Addresses within this space are pre-allocated by the emulator or router as follows:

    From Google emulator network addresses document, you can set the 10.0.2.xx to replace localhost.

    Or please use android devices and connect to the same network environment.

    Best Regards,
