Hi Aalia,

The password that you should be entering is your key's passphrase, that's the same one you use for github, or when unlocking wifi passwords and keychain manager pops up.

When the ssh command succeeds it doesn't output anything and just sits there happily.

Here's what the tutorial says (

If everything was successful, the command will just sit there and do nothing. At this point the tunnel is established.

Let me know if you need further assitance!

I am new to browserling. I am trying to establish a tunnel to my localhost and it looks like everything is successful (the command sits there and does nothing as per instructions). However when I try to got to the my localhost it fails (

I have local host running on a new tab in terminal and I can go to it myself outside of browserling. Please help - thanks!

Hello Ginta,

Did I understand it correctly that when you try to load in a Browserling browser, you don't get anything back?

When this happens, do you get an error, or just a blank page?

Which port does your localhost webserver/webapp run on?

Also can you paste the ssh command you're using? I want to make sure it matches localhost:port part.

When you access your app via the tunnel URL, then it receives "Host" HTTP header set to "". Sometimes the web server don't know it should be responding to this Host, so they do nothing (Apache especially.)

These questions and comments should let us find the problem quickly.

I am having same issue getting "Permission denied, please try again" when attempting to connect and entering the passphrase to the private key. I have changed the passphrase, and also generated new keys, added them to the browserling profile, and even changed the key's permissions to ensure it could be read/write/execute for all users.

I am using a Mac OS X. Please help.
