Tunneling

Use SRF tunnels to open secure connections between SRF and apps stored locally or behind a corporate firewall.

This is required only when the app you want to test is not publicly available.

Tunneling architecture

The following image describes how SRF, sitting in the cloud, communications with the on premises app you are testing behind a firewall.

Communication flows between the SRF tunnel server and the app you are testing via the tunnel client. The tunnel client is installed behind the firewall, and can access your app.
