docker-reverse-ssh-tunnel

This container setups up a reserve ssh tunnel between a NATed host and a public host. It allows the application server in the NATed host can be accessed through the public host, which helps the application poke a hole through its firewall.

Create Image

To create the image tifayuki/reverse-ssh-tunnel, execute the following command on the tutum-docker-couchdb folder:

    docker build -t tifayuki/reverse-ssh-tunnel .

Usage

On public host, run:

  docker run -d \
    -e ROOT_PASS=<your_password> \
    -p <your_sshd_port>:22 \
    -p <forwarding_port>:1080 \
    tifayuki/reverse-ssh-tunnel

Parameters:

  <your_password> is the password used for NATed host to connect the public host
  <your_sshd port> is the port for NATed host to connect to
  <forwarding port> is the port allows others to access

On NATed Host, run:

  docker run -d \
    -e PUBLIC_HOST_ADDR=<public_host_address> \
    -e PUBLIC_HOST_PORT=<public_host_port> \ 
    -e ROOT_PASS=<your_password> \
    -e PROXY_PORT=<NATed_service_port> \
    --net=host \
    tifayuki/reverse-ssh-tunnel

Parameters:

  <public_host_address> is the ip address or domain of your public host
  <public_host_port> is the same as <your sshd port> set on the public host
  <your_passorwd> is the same as <your passorwd> set on the public host
  <NATed_service_port> is the port that your service in NATed host listens to

Then, a user can access <public_host_address>:<forwording_port> to communicate the service running in the NATed host listened to port <PROXY_PORT>

Example

Suppose you have a service running in the NATed host, listens to port 8080, and there is also another public host with the ip address of 111.112.113.114. You want users to access 111.112.113.114:80 to communicate with your NATed service, you could the do the following:

On public host(111.112.113.114):

  docker run -d -e ROOT_PASS=mypass -p 2222:22 -p 80:1080 tifayuki/reverse-ssh-tunnel

On NATed host:

  docker run -d -e PUBLIC_HOST_ADDR=111.112.113.114 -e PUBLIC_HOST_PORT=2222 -e ROOT_PASS=mypass -e PROXY_PORT=8080 --net=host tifayuki/reverse-ssh-tunnel

Then, curl 111.112.113.114:80 will work
