Web access

Prerequisites

A Web server or service has been installed and is running on the same computer.

Enabling Web access on Mac OS X

How to configure YalerTunnel on Mac OS X to make a local Web service accessible from anywhere.

  1. To start YalerTunnel, using the port of the local Web service (e.g. 8080) and your relay domain (e.g. gsiot-ffmq-ttd5), type
    $ java YalerTunnel server 127.0.0.1:8080 try.yaler.io:80 RELAY_DOMAIN

    Do not change the local IP (default: 127.0.0.1), unless the Web service runs on a separate device in the same network.

  2. Done. Now access your device from any Web browser or with Curl (and resolve errors).
