Requirements

This chapter lists the prerequisites for an optimal use of Genymotion Device image on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Alibaba Cloud or Microsoft Azure.

Web browser

To use Genymotion Device image and view your instances in a web browser, we recommend using Google Chrome 85+ (Mobile or Desktop).

Genymotion Device image is also known to work fine on the following browsers, but may not provide an optimal level of performance:

  • Mozilla Firefox 78+
  • Opera 70+
  • Microsoft Edge 20.10240+
  • Safari 11+

Network security settings

Caution

ADB connections are neither secured nor authenticated: You should never open TCP port 5555 to 0.0.0.0/0 or anyone will be able to connect to your instance via adb without authentication.

If you open TCP port 5555 to any incoming source (0.0.0.0/0), we will not be able to guarantee your Genymotion instance integrity - do it at your own risks!

[Learn more]

To enable communication from your host(s) to your instance, you need to set or update your security groups/firewall to allow the connection from your local network (inbound) to the following ports:

Service Port
HTTPS/WSS TCP port 443
SSH (optional, recommended) TCP port 22
WebRTC1 (optional, recommended) TCP and UDP port range 51000-51100
HTTP (optional) TCP port 80
ADB (optional) TCP port 5555

  1. If you are using an Android 8.0+ image and you are behind a very restrictive web proxy, or a secured company network, WebRTC may not be available even with TCP/UDP ports 51000-51100 opened. Please refer to Accessing a virtual device from an enterprise network (NAT) for more information.
