Have you checked how to run a specific app's action via terminal? –  Izzy Jun 4 '13 at 15:26
    
What do you think is special about the emulator with respect to an SSH server? When you used a search engine to search for android ssh server, and found various open source ones, and tried them in the emulator, what did you learn? –  CommonsWare Jun 5 '13 at 15:45
    
They all want to have WiFi on device. All of them fail on emulator. I've tried to disable WiFi check but then they kind of run but do not work. –  myforums Jun 6 '13 at 15:20

Depending on how you have networking set up for your emulator, you might need to forward your SSH port from the emulator to a port on the host. Your emulator might be set up on a NAT/host-only network, so your SSH client can't actually reach the server.

To test this, try pinging the emulator's IP address from the system with your SSH client.
