This is a Heroku buildpack that adds
autossh to your heroku build and starts it, pointing at a given tunnel and target host and port.
autossh is a program to start a copy of ssh and monitor it, restarting
it as necessary should it die or stop passing traffic. More information about autossh can be found here: http://www.harding.motd.ca/autossh/)
If you're not already using multiple buildpacks, you'll need to set your app up to do so:
$ heroku buildpacks:set https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-multi.git
In your project add a
# .buildpacks https://github.com/Adcolony-Engineering/heroku-buildpack-autossh.git https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-ruby.git#v138 # or whatever buildpack you were previously using
Then set the following environment variables in your Heroku app:
SSH_TUNNEL_PUBLIC_KEY: the public SSH key for the tunnel
SSH_TUNNEL_PRIVATE_KEY: the public SSH key for the tunnel
SSH_TUNNEL_IP: the IP of the SSH tunnel machine to use
SSH_TUNNEL_TARGET_HOST: the host to tunnel to
SSH_TUNNEL_TARGET_PORT: the port to tunnel to
Additionally, you can optionally set the following:
SSH_TUNNEL_LISTEN_PORT: the local port to forward traffic to the target over (default: 29177)
Then, instead of connecting to
you can connect to
