Get Help With Forward
Forward allows you to easily make a webserver running on any port on your computer accessible to anyone you'd like. When you run Forward, you get a unique URL, viewable over the internet from anywhere with just a web browser. All requests to that URL are tunneled to the webserver running on your computer.
A few common uses:
- Share your Forward URL with clients or coworkers to get quick feedback on your local development site
- Test your locally-run development server with a real SSL certificate (great for pesky IE SSL bugs)
- Develop and test against APIs that require callback URLs that are accessible on the public Internet
- Develop and test mobile applications against locally run servers
