The tunnel command establishes a secure tunnel between your local machine and a data component in remote app. It binds to a local port, through which you can connect to your running service.


# Pattern
nanobox tunnel <remote> <component> -p <local-port>

# Examples
nanobox tunnel data.db
nanobox tunnel staging data.redis -p 6379


-p, --port

Specifies the local port through which you'd like to establish the secure tunnel.
