Tunnel To Internal Hosts: Local or Behind Firewall


For testing applications that are hosted locally or behind a firewall, we provide the ability to establish a secure tunnel connection to your environment. The secure tunnel is only accessible to our testing environment.

Getting Started

Screener uses Ngrok Link to create private and secure tunnels.

  1. Message Us and let us know the internal URL you would like to test. Then we will pass you a config file with a reserved tunnel domain dedicated to your Screener account.

  2. Download and unzip the Ngrok tunnel client for your platform.

  3. Start the tunnel using the config file with the following command:

  4. ./ngrok start -config=config.yml tunnel

An encrypted tunnel connection will then be established, which Screener will use to access and run tests against your internal environment.
