I’m an appium newbie and would like to use the ”Remote Server” functionality. I have googled but did not find good information about it, or how to use it. Hope you can help
Here is my current setup:
I’m on a Windows machine where I use Java/TestNG/Eclipse to write automatic test cases with appium. I have an android device connected to a MAC mini machine. How can I run tests on the Windows machine , that communicates with a device connected to the MAC machine?
I can connect an android device to the Windows machine and successfully run automatic test against it locally. I can also connect the android device on the MAC and run things locally successful. However now I would like to move my device and connect it to a MAC mini and remotely run tests on it from my Windows machine. How can I do this?
Eventually I will replace my android device with a iOS device, so I need it to run on the MAC, while the tests executes on my Windows machine (as that is where I would like to develop the tests). According to the documentation, it says:
“… You can however use the Remote Server option to connect to an Appium server running on a Mac“
Any help how to achieve this (or any pointers to examples) is highly appreciated!
