SOCKS5 proxy with ssh tunnel and chrome in OSX
This article is about ssh, socks5, proxy and chrome.
Today I learned how to debug http services with chrome in remote environment.
I needed to debug http2 services which were only available in remote environment.
Here are the commands that you need:
# Open socks5 proxy to local port 1337 # This connects to remote host using ssh into port 2222 $ ssh -D 1337 -f -C -q -N user@remote -p 2222 # Symlink chrome binary to PATH # ( This is optional ) $ ln -s /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome \ /usr/local/bin/chrome # Open chrome using the socks5 proxy in port 1337 $ chrome --proxy-server="socks5://127.0.0.1:1337" \ --host-resolver-rules="MAP * 0.0.0.0 , EXCLUDE localhost"
After this new chrome window opens and all requests except
localhost are resolved through the remote machine.
Now you can access remote services easily from your browser.
