Ngrok Introduction and How to Use Ngrok | Tool | Ubuntu | Heck Tech Lanka

I recently wrote about RemoteIE which may be a tool created to assist developers on non-Windows OS’es to check for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11. It uses Microsoft’s RemoteApp virtualization software to make a browsing session without the necessity to put in a VM. Developers are sending us tons of requests to expand it bent other versions of IE.

One of the large limitations, though, is that the incontrovertible fact that you can’t access resources or sites locally hosted on your development machine. this is often a cumbersome limitation and narrows the usability of the tool for testing. It’s been nagging at me for awhile that we couldn’t use this during this fashion, but this past week I found an answer that I wanted to share.

Ngrok – Secure Tunnels to localhost


Ngrok Features:

  • Easy install with zero run-time dependencies for any major platform and works fast.
  • Supports secure tunnels.
  • Captures and analyzes all traffic over the tunnel for later inspection and replay.
  • Allows you to do away with port forwarding in your router.
  • Enables implementing of HTTP authentication (password protection).
  • Uses TCP tunnels to expose networked service that do not use HTTP such as SSH.
  • Supports tunneling only HTTP or HTTPS with SSL/TLS certificates.
  • Supports multiple simultaneous tunnels.
  • Allows for replaying webhook requests.
  • Enables you to work with virtual-host sites.
  • It can be automated via an API plus many options in the paid plan.
How to Install Ngrok
Method 01
$ mkdir ngrok
$ cd ngrok/
$ wget -c https://bin.equinox.io/c/4VmDzA7iaHb/ngrok-stable-linux-amd64.zip
$ unzip ngrok-stable-linux-amd64.zip
$ ls
Method 02
Go to the official web site https://ngrok.com/Download and Extract NGROK File
Local Web how to publish online 
Once you have the binary file, let’s create a basic index.html page in the web server’s (Apache) default document root for testing requests to the web server.
$ sudo vi /var/www/html/index.html
Add the following HTML content in the file.
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
        <body>
                <h1>This is a Tec.ramsofttm.com Testing Site</h1>
                <p>We are testing Ngrok reverse proxy server.</p>
        </body>
</html>
Save the file and launch ngrok by specifying the http port 80 (if you have configured you web server to listen on another port, you need to use that port):
$ Ngrok http 8080
Once you start it, you should see an output similar to the one below in your terminal.
