We have a local connection option which allows you to test sites behind your firewall, or to access web pages that are saved locally on your machine. In just a few seconds, you can establish a connection which allows you to do live testing or screenshots against any of the internal sites you have access to.
To run a Local Connection, launch the dialog in the app:
An encrypted tunnel is created between your machine and CrossBrowserTesting.com. This connection is initiated on your PC when you start a local connection.
Requirements / limitations:
- Java Applet and command line JAR: Outbound ssh requests to port 22 on CrossBrowserTesting.com must be allowed via your firewall.
- Chrome extension and NodeJS module: Outbound ssh requests to port 443, SSL on CrossBrowserTesting.com must be allowed via your firewall.
Your firewall administrator should be able to implement these rules for you.
