Is it possible to test a Expo server that requires access to a local servers externally?

#1

I’m about to finish my final exam, where I’m developing an app and I’d of course love to show this app to my exam. Unfortunately the APIs needed to run the app is running internally, and we can’t put any of the servers online just yet.

My question is if it’s possible to run my app somehow to my exam (which is taking place at an entirely other location)?

Extra info:

  • Computers in the company is VMs, so I don’t think an emulator and screen sharing is a viable solution.
  • The app needs to access servers through the same LAN as the servers.

I hope this makes sense :slight_smile:
Best regards

Hard to answer without more info about what this means. You can expose a local server using something like https://ngrok.com/. If the server is behind a VPN then you need to connect your phone to that VPN as well.
