Accessing localhost server in host machine from Genymotion Emulator

Genymotion runs on Virtualbox, and the default network configuration is “Host-Only”. Host-only essentially means all network requests within Genymotion are routed through the host machine. Put other way, the host becomes the network proxy for Genymotion.

Now should we run any service in the host machine that Genymotion needs to make use of, all we need to do is get the host machine ip address as seen by Genymotion Virtualbox. From host machine perspective, the name of the Genymotion’s network will be vboxnet0.
