I am developing an application in my university lab. My lab administration provides a proxy server instead of a real internet connection to our university computers.

I don't know how to configure a proxy server with the Android emulator.

Any ideas?

Maybe would be better at stackexchange very slightly. – Liam W Jul 27 '12 at 10:29
@liamwli No it wouldn't. This has nothing to do with development. – Richard Borcsik Jul 27 '12 at 12:11

I see this blog post explaining how to configure APN settings to browse through a proxy. At first, I could not believe that the APN mentioned (as TelKila) in the post will be available in my emulator. But to my surprise I find a APN is available though with a different name (as T-Mobile US).

Since I do not have a proxy server environment, I could not check and confirm this. However the comment in the blog seems to confirm it.

Very badly, there isn't a way to do this. Emulators are just like androids - no way to add a proxy, unless you use an external app, and you must be rooted to do so.

I know, and I said there is no way to connect via a proxy in the emulator. – Liam W Jul 27 '12 at 10:41
