I can’t use the command
telnet localhost 5554 to connect Android emulator.
Always get this error:
Connecting To localhost…Could not open connection to the host, on port
5554: Connect failed
I even have all ports set to allow connections in both the inbound and outbound rules in Windows Firewall.
I am running Windows 7.
I’ve encountered this issue a few times, I’m not sure how the the emulator deals with addresses, but localhost just doesn’t work for me.
Changing the connection command to
telnet 127.0.0.1 5554 enabled me to connect, so if localhost doesn’t work, try 127.0.0.1
Try using the complete command inside telnet:
Microsoft Telnet> open localhost 5554
That should work, sometimes we forget to write the entire command
Use the netstat tool to verify the application is listening on that port. I’m not familiar with netstat on windows, but it seems you’ll need -a -n and optionally the -o options.
If you see the process listening, keep looking at the firewall. If you don’t see one, figure out why it’s not running.
Firstly … you should enable Telnet command in windows .
then it will work 🙂
If “telnet localhost 5554” doesnt work, try using port 5037.
Also ensure that the Emulator is running.
In cmd: you press cd D:\Android\sdk\platform-tools. It is path to platform-tools in your computer. After you can input telnet localhost 5554
redir add udp:9876:9876 or redir add tcp:5000:6000
first simply type telnet to your command prompt
Microsoft Telnet> open 127.0.0.1 5554
above line might show you following result
Android Console: Authentication required
Android Console: type ‘auth ‘ to authenticate
Android Console: you can find your in C:\Users\YOURPCNAME.emulator_console_auth_token’
then go into your ‘c’ drive then user where you find .emulator_console_auth_token
open that file and put you auth token like below
then you find
Android Console: type ‘help’ for a list of commands
it means you are connected now..
