New Embedded Tunneling Support in API Server

The API Server has been enhanced with built-in 'Cloud Gateway' tunneling functionality. This powerful new capability allows users of API Server to create a secure reverse tunnel to any publicly accessible host, allowing external clients to connect to your on-premises API Server data behind the firewall.

Configure the 'Cloud Gateway' Feature and Create External Connections to the API Server

Once the Tunnel is configured, clients connect to the publicly accessible port on the host and traffic is securely forwarded to the API Server behind the firewall. If you are interested in configuring the Tunneling feature, download the latest release of the API Server and review our Knowledge Base article.
