How to access server on local network in the UWP/Android debugger?

Hi I am developing an Android/UWP app with Xamarin Forms and Visual Studio 2019. The app will be used to access web api services always within our local network, so the endpoint will be using the server name or IP address like I have no trouble pinging or accessing the server from my dev machine, but I can't connect to the server using either the VS UWP local machine debugger, or the Android emulator. I've tried pinging, I've also tried James Montemagno's Connectivity plugin but no luck. I have switched off the firewall on my machine - how can I access the server in a debug session?
