How to call your own ASP.NET MVC project preaent on same machine from xamrin webview

I am creating a <strong>Xamarin WebView</strong> for an <strong>ASP.NET MVC5</strong> Application, but when I run the emulator I faced the following: ERR_Connection Refused. Can you explain me how to call project present in same machine from Xamarin WebView?

protected override void OnCreate(Bundle bundle) { base.OnCreate(bundle); // Set our view from the "main" layout resource SetContentView(Resource.Layout.Main); web_view = FindViewById < WebView > (Resource.Id.webview); web_view.Settings.JavaScriptEnabled = true; web_view.LoadUrl("http://localhost:53183/"); }


Localhost within the emulator will be the emulator itself, not your PC.

Change http://localhost:53183 to:


Note: Most emulators also map "" and/or "" as your PC's loopback adapter.

http://: http://:

You can test it via adb:

adb shell ping


Assuming your localhost is running under IIS express, you need to tell your windows machine to accept connections to that site/port. Open PowerShell as administrator:

netsh http add urlacl url=http://{windows-local-ip}:53183/ user=everyone

If your machine language is not english you´ll have to change "everyone" with the corresponding translation.

Then open the file applicationhost.config that you can find on YourSolution/.vs/config/applicationhost.config and search the site node corresponding to your application:

<site name="YourApplication" id="1">...</site>

Inside, you´ll find a default <binding> node pointing to localhost. Leave it as is, but add a new one with your computer local ip:

<binding protocol="http" bindinginformation="*:53183:{local-ip}"></binding>

For instance:

<binding protocol="http" bindinginformation="*:80:"></binding>

When you launch/debug your website, right click the IIS express icon. You should see something like this (localhost + your ip:port):

If you still don´t see your ip like in the picture, restart Visual Studio.

Last, you may need to open the port 53183 in your firewall. Just to make sure it isn´t the firewall blocking the connection, deactivate it and try again.
