Access the Kong server console

For security reasons, the Kong server console will be accessible only when using 127.0.0.1 as the hostname. To access the server console, it is necessary to create an SSH tunnel by forwarding port 8001 on the Kong server to port 8001 on the local host.

An example of configuring the SSH tunnel using PuTTY on Windows is displayed below.

PuTTY tunnel config

While the tunnel is active, you should be able to access the server console through the secure SSH tunnel you created, by browsing to http://127.0.0.1:8001/.

Refer to the FAQ for platform-specific instructions to create the SSH tunnel.
