- ADB tool from Android SDK (platform-tools).
If you are using Android Studio, the SDK platform-tools are already included.
To connect your Genymotion instance to your favorite developer's tool (IDE), you just need to connect it to ADB.
Setup your Cloud network firewall
ADB connections use TCP port 5555, so you first need to allow inbound connections to this port on your Cloud firewall.
Do not open inbound TCP port 5555 to everyone (All, 0.0.0.0/0), or your instance will be vulnerable to attacks! Only allow inbound connections to TCP port 5555 from authorized hosts.
Please refer to your Cloud provider documentation to setup your Cloud network firewall:
A more secure option is to only open inbound connection to SSH and use a SSH tunnel. For detailed instructions, please refer to Genymotion Device Image user guide.
Connect the instance to ADB
Follow the steps from our user guide: How to access a virtual device from ADB?
Once done, your instance should appear like a connected device in your IDE.
