ngrok vs Teleconsole: What are the differences?

ngrok: Securely expose a local web server to the internet and capture all traffic for detailed inspection and replay. ngrok is a reverse proxy that creates a secure tunnel between from a public endpoint to a locally running web service. ngrok captures and analyzes all traffic over the tunnel for later inspection and replay; Teleconsole: Share your UNIX terminal in seconds. Teleconsole is a free service to share your terminal session with people you trust. Your friends can join via a command line using SSH or by using their browser. Use it when two parties are separated by NAT and you cannot connect via SSH directly.

ngrok and Teleconsole can be primarily classified as "localhost" tools.

Some of the features offered by ngrok are:

  • Expose any http service behind a NAT or firewall to the internet on a subdomain of ngrok.com
  • Expose any tcp service behind a NAT or firewall to the internet on a random port of ngrok.com
  • Inspect all http requests/responses that are transmitted over the tunnel

On the other hand, Teleconsole provides the following key features:

  • Forwarding local TCP ports - how to let joining parties access TCP ports on your localhost.
  • Using Secure Sessions - how to invite specific people, like Github users or owners of a specific public SSH key.
  • Private Proxies - how to set up your own proxy servers without having to rely on https://teleconsole.com.

ngrok and Teleconsole are both open source tools. It seems that ngrok with 16.5K GitHub stars and 2.87K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Teleconsole with 2.29K GitHub stars and 96 GitHub forks.
