[hr]Emulator's Browser does not work behind a HTTP Proxy
Detailed Problem Description:
When you launch an android application from Eclipse, the emulator's browser does not work when the machine is behind an HTTP Proxy. The localhost (10.0.2.2) does not work either.
Under "Run Configurations", select the configuration being used to launch the app. Select the "Target" tab. Look for emulator params textbox. Add in the proxy information as "-http-proxy http://login:password@ip:port
" without quotes. You may skip the login and password if the proxy does not require authentication. Restart Eclipse and relaunch using the same run configuration. Verify by launching the browser from the simulator.
