If you run an SSH server on the machine that hosts the
MySQL Enterprise Service Manager and an SSH client on the machine that hosts the
agent, you can create an SSH tunnel so that the agent can bypass
your firewall. First, you need to make an adjustment to the
hostname value specified in the
[mysql-proxy] section of the
.ini file. (For more information about the
contents and location of the
.ini file see
Section C.2.1, “MySQL Enterprise Agent Configurable Options”.) Stop the
agent and change the
hostname value as shown in
hostname = http://
password with suitable values. Likewise replace
18080 if you are not running the dashboard
on this port. Use
localhost for the host name,
since the agent is connecting through an SSH tunnel.
Next, execute the following command on the machine where the agent is running:
shell> ssh -L
When prompted, enter the password for
If you are not running the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager on port
18080, substitute the appropriate port number.
Dashboard_Host with the
user_name represents a valid
operating system user on the machine that hosts the
MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.
Be sure to restart the agent so that the new value for the
hostname takes effect. For instructions on
restarting the agent see:
Under Windows see, Section 188.8.131.52, “Starting/Stopping the Agent on Windows”.
Under Unix see, Section 184.108.40.206, “Starting/Stopping the Agent on Unix”.
Under Mac OS X see, Section 220.127.116.11, “Starting/Stopping the Agent on Mac OS X”.
