Hello,

with the new experimental(*) proxmox4 cluster I noticed that the new websocket-using implementation of the consoles seemingly cant be (ssh-)tunneled anymore. The only bit of information about that which I found suggests to use plaintext ws:// instead of wss:// while tunneling (since the tunnel takes care of the encryption and wss doesnt work through proxies). Now I couldnt figure out wether proxmox is using wss or not but maybe thats not even the problem here.

But surely I cant be the first person to get tripped up by this... any solutions? temporary changes to /usr/share/perl5/PVE/* files would be fine.


(*) running it as experimental since LXC really isnt that great still.


Thanks!

Hi, are you sure that it does not work ? I've got at least a few client sites deployed with Proxmox 4.X where I ssh to the site and use a SSH tunnel forward as per old style, I'm just hitting VNC port on the proxmox as always and it works dandy for me. Maybe you are doing something different-fancy-special that is another / different / not working. But wanted to confirm - because the way you post implies "I think this should not work" and not, "I have tried it and it does not work".

hm may have been unclear then: doesnt work for me. I just the normal procedure: do a normal ssh -D <localport> <jumphost> and then use localport as a SOCKS proxy in my browser. How are you doing it that it works for you?
