Connecting to localhost Webservice from real device

Hey there,


I'm trying to consume my own WebService running on localhost but since there is no simulator for Mac OS I was wondering if there is any possibility to connect to it from a real device for testing?


Thanks in advance!

Cheers, Musipoo

Re: Connecting to localhost Webservice from real device

if your device is in wifi and the PC is in the same network you should be able to connect fine.
localhost won't work of course, you need the ip address.
