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.
Screener uses Ngrok Link to create private and secure tunnels.
- 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.
- Download and unzip the Ngrok tunnel client for your platform.
- Start the tunnel using the config file with the following command:
./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.
