A service tunnel is a point to point tunnel used for accessing services in remote environments.
The micro tunnel provides a way to access services across remote environments. This is great where you want to tunnel to staging, prod or expose local services externally without using something like openvpn or wireguard which would expose all things in your network.
Start the tunnel server (Runs on port :8083)
Now the tunnel is running you can connect to it with a local tunnel.
micro tunnel --server=remote.env:8083
Any request now made through the tunnel will be proxied to a service on the other side.
Set your proxy to use the tunnel
MICRO_PROXY=go.micro.tunnel go run main.go
Your service will direct all traffic through the tunnel.
Specify a tunnel token to limit access to who can tunnel into the environment. Tokens must match between tunnel clients and servers otherwise the connection is rejected.
MICRO_TUNNEL_TOKEN=foobar go run main.go
By default the token “micro” is used allowing anyone to connect via the tunnel.
