Im experiencing a problem when trying toload my app to the playbook simulator via flash builder 4.0.1 - I get ....
Error: Cannot connect to target: Connection timed out: connect
when trying to run the AIRHelloWorld app - It creates the .bar ok and I have followed the instructions for setting up VMPlayer in the getting started for windows.
I have spent nearly 2 days on this sdk and am still not able to develop.
I have tried disabling firewall and changing network type in vmware player.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Have you try to ping the Tablet Simulator IP address? Is it in a different machine?

Yes I have pinged the ip address 192.168.137.128 but nothing gets returned. Thats the ip address that is being displayed on the sim itself.
I see in the router logs that a packet is sent when i try to load the app to 192.168.37.128, 443 but nothing else is logged or happens (apart from the time out error) - the sim is on the same pc as flash builder.

I'm not sure what else to say... are you running this on Windows or Mac?
One thing that I've noticed that by default, the VM is using NAT. You could try change it to "host-only".
Other than that I'd think to review the Windows firewall settings, and also see if the VMWare network adapters are installed.

Disabled firewall and tried all three kind of network connection on vmplayer. No luck.
Looks like ill have to leave the sdk until its improves a bit.
Any one tell me why i can t reach the sim from flash builder even though i provide the ip address the simulator gives me?

Doesn't look like the SDK but rather VM Player network issue.
You said "I have pinged the ip address 192.168.137.128 but nothing gets returned", you need to be able to ping the IP address and get the ICMP packages return. Further more you can try "telnet" to this IP to see if you can get a login prompt. When both ping and telnet work, you need to make sure there is no blocking on port 443.

I have managed to get the hello world app onto the sim, I updated flash player as a long shot and i think that might be the reason it now works.
