Device - HTTPs Web Configurator Tunnels

Post by Cubert »

Operating the Web Configurator Redirecting Tunnel

You have 1 main requirements for this feature to work.
  • The PC you are using to access the Automate Control Center and this plugin must be a part of your Automate environment. This means it needs to have an installed and functional agent running for redirectors to operate correctly with your PC.
The Web Configurator function allows you to open up a SOCKS tunnel between you and an end agent able to access the web portal at the location of the firewall. This tunnel is proxied by the ConnectWise provided and hosted proxy servers and is a built in function of Automate.

Here is how it works.

Launch the Redirection control
