- gcloud compute start-iap-tunnel - starts an IAP TCP forwarding tunnel
Starts a tunnel to Cloud Identity-Aware Proxy for TCP forwarding through which
another process can create a connection (eg. SSH, RDP) to a Google Compute
To learn more, see the IAP for TCP forwarding documentation.
To open a tunnel to the instances's RDP port on an arbitrary local port, run:
gcloud compute start-iap-tunnel my-instance 3389
To open a tunnel to the instance's RDP port on a specific local port, run:
gcloud compute start-iap-tunnel my-instance 3389 --local-host-port=localhost:3333
- POSITIONAL ARGUMENTS
- Name of the instance to operate on. For details on valid instance names, refer to the criteria documented under the field 'name' at: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/reference/rest/v1/instances
- The name or number of the instance's port to connect to.
- Disables the immediate check of the connection.
LOCAL_HOST:LOCAL_PORTon which gcloud should bind and listen for connections that should be tunneled.
LOCAL_PORTmay be omitted, in which case it is treated as 0 and an arbitrary unused local port is chosen. The colon also may be omitted in that case.
LOCAL_PORTis 0, an arbitrary unused local port is chosen.
Zone of the instance to operate on. If not specified, you may be prompted to
select a zone (interactive mode only).
gcloudattempts to identify the appropriate zone by searching for resources in your currently active project. If the zone cannot be determined,
gcloudprompts you for a selection with all available Google Cloud Platform zones.
To avoid prompting when this flag is omitted, the user can set the
gcloud config set compute/zone ZONE
A list of zones can be fetched by running:
To unset the property, run:
gcloud config unset compute/zone
Alternatively, the zone can be stored in the environment variable
