WebSSH's Tunnel feature will let you to enable Local Port Forwarding (LPF) and Dynamic Port Forwarding (DPF).
Local Port Forwarding and Dynamic Port Forwarding are both techniques used in SSH tunneling, but they have different use cases.
Here's a little table summarizing the key differences :
|Feature||Local Port Forwarding||Dynamic Port Forwarding|
|Purpose||Forward traffic from a local port to a remote host/service||Create a SOCKS proxy for accessing multiple remote services|
|Security||Provides secure access to a specific remote service||Can potentially provide access to multiple remote services|
|Example Usage||Accessing a web server on a remote host||Accessing multiple remote services through a proxy|
In summary, SSH Local Port Forwarding is used to forward traffic from a specific local port to a specific remote host/service, while Dynamic Port Forwarding is used to create a SOCKS proxy that can be used to access multiple remote services.
Both are simple to use, and can be configured in WebSSH by following the instructions below :
