Tunneling to cloud instance using Cygwin with Foxy proxy in Windows


#1

We can use for any cloud instance, Here we explained for GCP. First, we have to add the port in firewall rules.

  1. Open Cygwin and run the command

ssh -i .ssh/gcp_key_bigdatacluster -D 8000 -N username@GCPPublicIP

  1. Install FoxyProxy from the Chrome App store link

  2. Configure new Proxie by Clicking on Add New Proxy

  3. Give a name in General tab and Configure like bellow in Proxy Details
    **Port number should be same as port number provided in the command above

  4. Once you configure then click on Use proxy gcp1 for all URLs
    **gcp1 is my proxy name, Replace with your proxy name

  1. Now you can access all the URLs.
